The Klezmer Revival: The Next Generation

With the Klezmatics putting Woody Guthrie poems to music it is clear that Jewish music in America is going through exciting new changes. It isn't just klezmer, Debbie Friedman, or Avraham Fried any more. Where an earlier generation gave the world "Bei Mir Bist du Shein," a Jewish Lubavitch hip hop singer is back on the mainstream pop charts, punk Yiddish singing (a band called "Golem") is taking the club circuit by storm and even today's klezmer has gone through some changes since our grandparents time.

Free and open to the public.
