Klezmer-ish have discovered a blend of music and an informal brand of performance that is proving to be an enormous hit with their audiences, and we are very happy to introduce them to you as part of our fusion-themed season.

There is common ground between the folk and popular music of so many countries in the world, and today’s programme - travelling from middle Europe to Ireland by way of Argentina - is both diverse and unified. The members of Klezmer-ish met one another in the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra; they are classically-trained musicians and masters of their craft, and it will be wonderful to witness them in such an unconstrained format.
