Klezmer meets Bluegrass!
Klezmer clarinetist Margot Leverett takes genres literally worlds apart and finds their uniting spirit. Appalachian and southern fiddle tunes by Bill Monroe meet klezmer melodies from pre-war Russia and Eastern Europe. The resulting medleys and improvisations are at once raw, funny, melancholic and foot stomping.
“Suddenly, bluegrass comes in an array of colors.”
“Klezmer and bluegrass sound as if they were meant to be combined. Leverett & the Klezmer Mountain Boys have given us a wonderful gift.” — Dirty Linen
