Chanukah Klezmer Ceilidh

Dance your socks off with the London Klezmer Quartet!

Thurs 13 December, 7.30pm


Dance your socks off with the London Klezmer Quartet at this event for all ages and abilities. Ilana Cravitz will guide you through circle, couple and square dances of Jewish eastern Europe, including freylekhs, bulgar, zhok, sher, and patsh, with live music from the band. No partner or previous experience needed. Listeners also welcome!

The London Klezmer Quartet is a dynamic group of performers whose deep understanding of klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, is reflected in exuberant, passionate and accomplished performances that captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

London Klezmer Quartet was formed in 2009 by a group of klezmer specialists keen to explore the almost-lost wedding music tradition of Jewish eastern Europe. The band was swiftly picked up by some of the UK’s foremost folk and world music promoters - Songlines Magazine, Continental Drifts and The Magpie’s Nest offered stages for the group's unique combination of artistry and exuberance. The band is also one of the few in the world who lead the Yiddish dances that this music would traditionally have accompanied.
