Disciples of Goldenshteyn, Seattle, WA, May 31

Still wanting more after this Sunday night's Northwest Folklife Balkan bash? Grab your latte, chase off that hangover and boogie the morning after to "Disciples of Goldenshteyn," a trio playing old-time Bessarabian Wedding Band music.

Andrew Ehrlich (violin), Milton From (clarinet) and Martin Morgenbesser (accordion) will wake you up with tunes we've learned from our beloved teacher and personal hero, clarinetist German Goldenshteyn. This lively and soulful traditional dance music blends Jewish, Moldovan, Roma, Romanian and Ukrainian influences into a heady Klezmer brew once performed throughout Bessarabia for weddings and communal celebrations.

"Disciples of Goldenshteyn" will perform at Northwest Folklife, Seattle Center, this Monday, Memorial Day, May 31st from 11:00 till 11:30 AM at the Exhibition Hall Lawn Stage.

To learn more about German Goldenshteyn and the music he plays go to Interview with a Bessarabian Klezmer, German Goldenstyn. German Goldenshteyn teaches every year at KlezKanada. Check it out! Learn from our master!
