Wholesale Klezmer, Saratoga Springs, NY, Dec 16

The Wholesale Klezmer Band returns for its annual Chanukah concert at Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY with a mixture of new and old repertoire. Among the featured songs will be a Yiddish/Hungarian medley including a melody for Dovid Melekh Yisroyel that you've likely never heard before a humorous vaudeville song about atoning for one's foibles last brought up to date with new verses in 1990, but suddenly à propos again after the November election Yosl Kurland's version of the classic Yiddish song, Motl der Operayter, about a striking worker killed on the picket line brought up to date with verses about third world sweatshops Badkhones - a traditional wedding jester's humorous advice to a bride in Yinglish a couple of Chanukah songs, of course and plenty of happy and sad, lively and meditative klezmer tunes
