London Klezmer Quartet concert

  • new unity 39A Newington Green London, England, N16 9PR United Kingdom

'The London Klezmer Quartet returns to New Unity in Newington Green with an acoustic show based on their new album, 'To the Tavern'.

A band arrives at dawn at a railway station in a small middle-European country town for a 24-hour sojourn. The musicians find their way around, get to know the locals and lead a rowdy session at the local tavern, before exhaustion sets in as they see in the new day. 

With a wealth of traditional-style compositions by the band, this adventure in celebratory and soulful Jewish wedding music also features the irresistibly sonorous vocals of Indra Buraczewska in traditional laments, a Warsaw Yiddish theatre hit with a hint of jazz (‘Goodbye New York’) and a song about beetroot soup. 

Ilana Cravitz (violin), Susi Evans (clarinet), Carol Isaacs (accordion), Indra Buraczewska (double bass and vocals). 

Tickets: £11 in advance (incl. booking fee) or £13 on the door. Students, under 16s  and MU members: £5.50 in advance (incl. booking fee) or £6 on the door. Under 10s free.
