Shabbos Ranks, Frank London’s Klezmer Brass All-Stars (Chronikah CD Release) & the YNY Jam Session.
Shabbos Ranks is an exploratory trip through experimental dub, klezmer, and improvised music, formed by trumpeter Celeste Cantor-Stephens (Bristol, UK) and guitarist/mandolinist Sam Day Harmet (Brooklyn, USA). This borderless collaboration was ignited by a shared interest in the language of Jewish music, spun through a kaleidoscope of experimental influences at the intersection of Bristol and Brooklyn. Here, klezmer meets spaced-out skanking, Downtown jazz, dubby post-punk, and swirling headphone psychedelia.
Next, Grammy-winning trumpeter Frank London (The Klezmatics) brings his sensational Klezmer Brass All-Stars up on the stage for the world premiere of music from their new CD release, Chronikah (Sir Frank gave us a sneak listen and it’s a sensational mix of brass & electronica!). Dancing shoes are a must!
And bring your instrument – the evening ends with an always fun YNY Klezmer Jam Session!
