Aug 28, 2015

As sure is there is a chill now in the evening air, the summer cultural season in our region is winding down. You still have a few chances to catch “His Girl Friday” at Barrington Stage in Pittsfield, and Shakespeare & Company in Lenox has a few shows in rotation this weekend. But the summer theater season is pretty much over with.

I have to confess that I am of course partial to this weekend’s YIDSTOCK Festival of New Yiddish music, an international four-day event featuring klezmer concerts, dance and instrumental workshops, lectures, film programs and all kinds of fun stuff, at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, as I helped put it together. So let me just say that up front, but also to let you know that there are still tickets available to tonight’s concert by the Yiddish Art Trio at 5pm; Saturday night’s show by hip-hop Yiddish-fusion artist Socalled, with special guests, at 8pm; and Sunday afternoon’s unique show at 3pm by Lorin Sklamberg of the Klezmatics and two of Europe’s greatest Yiddish musicians – clarinetist Merlin Shepherd, from Wales by way of Brighton; and vocalist Polina Shepherd, from Tatarstan by way of Brighton. There’s nothing else like Yidstock outside of major cities like Toronto, Krakow, or New York City, and the festival has events all day today through Sunday night.
