Swing by for some more swinging Klezmer music with Klezkonnection, who appeared at last year's Jewish Music Week in Toronto and are back by special request! This unique Ashkenazic sound is like nothing else, and this energetic group plays it with style. You'll love the beat, the sound, the energy. The lively spirit of traditional Klezmer will tickle your heart and lift your spirits for the rest of the day!
Klezkonnection is the largest community klezmer band in Canada, under the leadership of clarinetist Jonno Lightstone (of The Yiddish Swingtet. See Tuesday Afternoon Tunes.). In 2010, Klezkonnection garnered popular acclaim at the Ashkenaz Festival of Yiddish Culture, and over the past five years they have played throughout the area. Upcoming local appearances include the UJA Walk on May 21, Sunnybrook on June 10, and The Guildwood Music festival in Scarborough on July 28.
