Nisht Geferlach Klezmer Band - farewell concert

Saturday May 27th 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
@ Unitarian Church of Montpelier

Final Concert! Saturday, May 27 - 7 pm Unitarian Church of Montpelier Please join us for our farewell concert. Band members Steven Light and Kathy Light are moving. This will be the band's last concert except for a possible "reunion" concert next summer! The soulful and stirring music of the Jews of Eastern Europe and New York's Lower East Side found a home in Vermont in the summer of 1981, when a group of central Vermont musicians, entranced by the rhythms and spirit of klezmer music, formed the Nisht Geferlach Klezmer Band. "Nisht Geferlach" translated literally from the Yiddish means "not dangerous". More colloquially, it means "Relax, it won't kill you”. Or “Not so bad”, or “Not so bad”. The band plays songs from the golden age of New York's Yiddish Theater as well as freilachs, bulgars and other lively instrumentals that display the Dixieland influence on Jewish immigrant musicians. Our music can be jazzy, melancholy, thoughtful and ecstatic - sometimes in the same tune! People can get up and dance, they can listen to the songs, they can learn something or they can just have a really good time. Our music is enjoyed by audiences of all types - they are bound to hear something new and something familiar. Long recognized as Vermont’s finest (and only) Yiddish dance band, the band has played concerts and dances at festivals, performing arts centers, colleges, community events, weddings, on radio and TV, art museums, libraries, schools, Governor's inaugural balls and Knights of Columbus halls. The members of Nisht Geferlach are Rick Winston (accordion), Kathy Light (clarinet), Steven Light (trumpet), Will Lindner (bass) and Avram Patt (drums, vocals and tummler).   Tickets are available online (Seven Days Tickets) and at the door (https://sevendaystickets.com/organizations/the-nisht-geferlach-klezmer-band) For more information contact Steven Light: [email protected], 802 498-3173 or FaceBook: https://fb.me/e/4l4w1mn1N
