Yiddish Book Center - Yidstock 2014
Yidstock 2014: The Festival of New Yiddish Music will bring to the stage at the Yiddish Book Center the top names in Klezmer and new Yiddish music.
The bands include the Klezmer Conservatory Band, Nigunim Trio, the Klezmatics, Daniel Kahn & the Painted Bird and Frank London's Klezmer Brass Allstars with Eleanor Reissa.
Also on the bill are Yiddish dance workshops, Yiddish song workshops, lectures, and more. The idea for Yidstock was conceived by Susan Bronson who launched the annual festival in 2012. She joins us along with Seth Rogovoy, who is the program organizer for Yidstock and Yiddish Book Center's Founder and President, Aaron Lansky.
