Klezfest '07

"The Steel City Klezmorim"
Wednesday, May 30 7:30pm
Club Cafe, 56-58 S.12th St., South Side

Pittsburgh's own Steel City Klezmorim, a staple on the local music scene, has been making a name for themselves nationally and internationally. Band leader Henry Shapiro is part of a new generation of instrumentalists who bring a traditional sensibility to a non-traditional instrument. As a guitarist, he has forged an authentic sound and virtuosic style of klezmer. Joining him are the well-known klezmer maven and gypsy violinist Steven Greenman, the world-class cymbalim player Alex Fedoriouk, and pianist Josh Dolgin, a leading proponent of urban klezmer. Hear them take center stage at Club Cafe for a casual evening of food, drink, and traditional klezmer music. (Young guests must be 21 and over or accompanied by legal guardian.)

TICKETS $20 general admission, $15 seniors, $10 students
