The Michael Winograd Klezmer Trio (Michael Winograd on clarinet, Patrick Farrell on accordion and Benjy Fox-Rosen on bass) features three of the top, young musicians playing Klezmer music in New York today. Blending traditional Yiddish songs, and new compositions with chamber-like improvisations and spontaneous arrangements, this ensemble creates a unique approach to Klezmer music, and a fresh listening experience for their audience.

“Perhaps the leading voice of the younger generation of performers and composers within Klezmer, Yiddish and new Jewish music" —Dr. Joel Rubin, ethnomusicologist and clarinetist

“An unusual but intriguing ethnic amalgam; one that expands upon from both contemporary and historical sources.” —Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide

“One of the most exciting young improvisers working the crossroads of jazz and world music!” —Aaron Alexander, drummer and all around good guy
