September is national klezmer month!
Not really. But if you get Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band KlezMail, then every month can be national klezmer month!
Bi-monthly residency at the Burren starts on Saturday, 9/9!
Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello run one of the most musician-friendly venues we’ve ever played, and Tom Bianchi is a king of booking. Don’t forget to say hi to all of them when you join us at the residency kick-off this Saturday!
Fresh from the archives!
This recording of Rose Gross includes: xylophone krekhts; organ overload; and a super-speed version of a mazal tov that we love to play. Fun fact: 20th Century was an imprint of Gotham Record Corp., whose big star was Earl Bostic. #themoreyouknow
Meet Kirsten Lamb
One time, an audience member asked Kirsten how she could make so many sounds when her instrument only has four notes. Kirsten can play all the notes on the bass.
Kirsten grew up in Randolph, NJ and landed in Boston following her studies at Oberlin. She earned her masters at New England Conservatory and splits her time between the Wheels, Klezperanto, Cold Chocolate, Alfaia, and her solo material. #kirsteniseverywhere
Abigale has a not-so secret side project.
It’s called Thread Ensemble, and features our friends Andria and Rachel. Thread Ensemble improvises along with the audience to create new music at every performance. Check them out at www.threadensemble.com.
