"The Geshikhte/Story: A tiny shtetl in Dubiecko, Poland; three generations of a family klezmer band; post shabbos torchlight parade to Belzer rebbe; 1934 Bar Mitzvah on a boat to Amerca; family members live or die in Holocaust; Jewish music manuscripts found in family violin case. Fast forward to 2009, Adrianne Greenbaum and Sharon Frant Brooks make a miraculous shidduk/shidduch, Greenbaum transcribes the many scribbled pages of music, travels to Poland and performs a few of the tunes at the cemetary, and finally, “FleytMuzik’s” musicians perform these works that were alive in early 19th c. Poland, with the full musical story coming to fruition today."
