Art Bailey's Orkestra Popilar, Queens, NY, Jan 11

Art Bailey's Orkestra Popilar is a quartet consisting of accordion, violin, mandolin and bass that highlights both well-known and more obscure Klezmer tunes, as well as Bailey's own original compositions. Reminiscent of an earlier time in the history of recorded Jewish music, the result is fresh, unique, and thoroughly engaging. The synagogue's foyer is transformed into a "café-style" setting, complete with intimate tables and delicious desserts.
