Boston Public Library Yiddish Concert (April 23rd – Thursday at 2:00 p.m.)
Come join us for an afternoon of Yiddish folksongs and instrumental works with composer/performers Rebecca Kaplan & Pete Rushefsky. This singer and tsimblist duo, both of whom have studied the original style of Yiddish traditional music extensively, are known for their ability to preserve the authenticity of the Yiddish folk sound while at the same time bringing their own personal style to the table for added musical interest. This musician pair is well-known throughout the Northeast, making appearances at the New England Folk Festival, Eastman School of Music World Music Festival, and the Cental New York Jewish Music and Culture Festival. Their music has also been featured on the radio and they have recorded an album entitled On the Paths: Yiddish Songs with Tsimbl (Review)
