The dynamic Strauss/Warschauer Duo's performances are drawn from klezmer, Yiddish, Hasidic and liturgical music and culture, adding their own original compositions and song settings. As Deborah and Jeff sing and play in shifting combinations of violin, guitar, mandolin and accordion, they create a dynamic atmosphere with an exceptional range of feeling -- from delicate and refined to exuberant and foot-stomping.

Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer are two of the most astonishing and popular performers and teachers in the international klezmer and Yiddish music scene. They were both long-time members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and have performed with violinist Itzhak Perlman on film and in concert. As the Strauss/Warschauer Duo, they have performed to overwhelming acclaim in such diverse venues as the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Amsterdam International Yiddish Festival, the Jewish Culture Festival in Cracow, the Ashkenaz Festival in Toronto, and the Folksbiene Yiddish Theater in New York City. They lead workshops and classes throughout North America and Europe, are on the faculty of the KlezKamp and KlezKanada Yiddish culture programs, and are frequent instructors for the Jewish Music Institute/SOAS at the University of London.
