2015 - Bothy night, harbour work days & World Wide Knit in Public Day

Members and friends are invited to a bothy night on
Monday 8th June  5pm onwards,
Kleyne Klezmer

Kleyne Klezmer is a instrumental trio of clarinet, accordion and tuba based in Edinburgh. We play klezmer music – the celebratory music of Eastern European Yiddish-speaking Jewish communities. The music consists of many dance tunes, (very) roughly corresponding to Scottish strathspeys, reels and gigs in terms of tempo, but called hora, freylekhs and bulgar in this music. The music’s modal nature gives it a characteristic sound which differs from the western major and minor tonalities.

Simon Carlyle (tuba) and Andrew Gardiner (clarinet) are both vets by training. Jan Waterfield (accordion) is an early keyboard specialist and performs regularly in orchestras throughout the UK and beyond.

Supporting acts, Harmony & Horsehair, along with other local musicians
