Josh Horowitz & Cookie Segelstein, Madison, CT, 11 Jan 2009

On Sunday Jan. 11, 2009 at 1:30pm, Friends of Scranton Library invite you to
kick off the new year with an energetic musical program by The
Horowitz-Segelstein Duo at Scranton Library, 801 Post Rd., in Madison, CT. Cookie
and Josh Horowitz, both accomplished and celebrated local
musicians, carry on the ancient tradition of klezmer in an unbound,
energetic village style playing Jewish instrumental music of historical
Eastern Europe. These two musicians represent a new generation of players of
Klezmer music which reaches back at least 125 years in time to Eastern
European Jews and traditional folk music using familiar and possibly
unfamiliar instruments—the tsimbl, a 19th century Button Accordion and a
violin. Program is free and open to the public of all ages. Light
refreshments will be served. Handicapped accessible. For directions to
Scranton Library or to RSVP, please call (203) 245-7365.
