Klezmer Jam, London, UK, Nov 11, 2007

Chicken Soup for the Ears?

Come and join the London Klezmer Collective's monthly second-Sunday jam at the Cross Kings. Next session: Sunday 11 November between 1 and 4pm. Out-of-towners particularly welcome!

The capital's first regular klezmer session has found a home: the Cross Kings. While you're playing or listening, eat lunch, have a coffee, booze, shmooze or just relax in the deep sofas and convivial atmosphere of this great central London pub. There might even be a bit of dancing! The Cross Kings is at 126 York Way, London N1 0AX, a 10-minute walk from Kings Cross station with local parking. Visit www.thecrosskings.co.uk for details.

Klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of the Jews of eastern Europe, is the new flavour of the month. Anyone interested in playing or listening to klezmer is welcome to come along; no experience is necessary. Join skilled professionals, rank amateurs, home-grown talent and perhaps even some international visitors. For more klezmer information and sheet music for some of the tunes we might play visit www.ilanacravitz.com/jams.htm.
