Atomic Duo tribue to the late Gil Scott-Heron

I cannot thank Mark Rubin enough for passing on this bluegrass version of Gil Scott-Heron (z"l)'s "Whiteys on the Moon."

I suppose for KlezmerShack purposes I should have asked for the cantorial or klezmer version, though ;-)

Jewgrass in Durham, NC

My old friend, Riki Friedman and her band, Freylach Time! show off some of the "Jewgrass" they've been playing the last couple of years. Riki writes: "We are playing a fusion of the 2 styles we like to call "Jewgrass". There were a lot of problems with the sound system, so it's hard to hear the violin and accordian, but this still gives a good idea of what we have been doing. (Other than the corsets, which were special for this event.)"
