Klezmer music on stage at BIMA

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art will host Jewish folk musicians Orkestyr Farfeleh for a special one-day-only concert event at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14.

Klezmer is reportedly a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. Specifically, “Klezmer” is a Hebrew word, a combination of the words “kley” (vessel) and “zemer” (melody) that referred to musical instruments in ancient times. It then became colloquially attached to Jewish folk musicians sometime in the Middle Ages.

The show is replete with frelachs, Eastern European folk tunes, Yiddishkayt and “hats of overwhelming personality.”

Harvey Niebulski, Marianne Tatom and Thaddeus Spae perform on accordion, clarinet, trombone, guitarron, and vocals, and present diverse material with sharp ears, quick fingers and irrepressible humor, in a program “sure to delight young and old alike,” according to museum officials.

Tickets, $18 for members and $22 for non-members, are available now via www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4327250.
