Yale StromYale Strom and Hot Pstromi: Dave Tarras: The King of Klezmer

Sunday, November 6 at 2 PM
Kligerman-Greenspun Performance Hall
National Yiddish Book Center,
Amherst, MA

The concert will explore the music, history, and stories about musician Dave Tarras—the “Benny Goodman” of klezmer clarinet. Hot Pstromi’s sound—a fusion of traditional klezmer, new Jewish music, Gypsy, hasidic, world beat, and Balkan music—is unique and celebrated. Bandleader Yale Strom (violin) is the world’s leading ethnographer-artist of klezmer music, culture and history. His prodigious klezmer research was instrumental in helping form the repertoire of Hot Pstromi.
