David Krakauer's Acoustic Klezmer Project
David Krakauer, one of the most important and influential musicians in new Jewish music today and of the vital new wave of klezmer, is known mostly for his amplified sound pushing the boundaries of klezmer to include elements of jazz, rock, funk and hip-hop. With this program he will play acoustic versions of his music with his quartet.
"There is arguably no one today playing klezmer–or any music, for that matter–that is at once as deeply rooted in tradition while at the same time as utterly innovative and in-the-moment as David Krakauer."
- Seth Rogovy (author of The Essential Klezmer), The Berkshire Eagle
