"The Geshikhte/Story: A tiny shtetl in Dubiecko, Poland; three generations of a family klezmer band; post shabbos torchlight parade to Belzer rebbe; 1934 Bar Mitzvah on a boat to Amerca; family members live or die in Holocaust; Jewish music manuscripts found in family violin case. Fast forward to 2009, Adrianne Greenbaum and Sharon Frant Brooks make a miraculous shidduk/shidduch, Greenbaum transcribes the many scribbled pages of music, travels to Poland and performs a few of the tunes at the cemetary, and finally, “FleytMuzik’s” musicians perform these works that were alive in early 19th c. Poland, with the full musical story coming to fruition today."

Three renowned performers of Eastern European Jewish music come together in this exceptional new trio: Lorin Sklamberg, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics; uniquely innovative clarinetist Merlin Shepherd, and the remarkable vocalist/pianist Polina Shepherd, originally from Siberia.
Each performer represents a different nation, yet their backgrounds are closely related, their ancestors emigrating from the Ukraine to find a better world elsewhere. This fresh collaboration blends traditional and contemporary Yiddish and Russian song with klezmer styles and Southern Mediterranean music. Influenced by several cultures and maintaining individual styles, the trio plays original and traditional material with freedom and spontaneity. With mournful solo clarinet, bouncy village songs, and some fiery vocals, their performance takes us on a breathtaking musical journey that is full of spirited joy and deep emotion.
