|FrilingFête: Spring into Klezmer!|
Despite the snow on the ground here in Montreal, it looks like spring is finally on it’s way. Celebrate the season with a new micro-festival of events hosted by KlezKanada (with a little help from our friends) all throughout the city during the week of April 7-10th.
|Sunday, April 7th, 10am-3pm: Our monthly klezmer brunch returns! Join us for a morning feast and incredible music at the Fletchers Espace Culinaire in the Museum of Jewish Montreal (4040 St-Laurent, corner Duluth). Please call 514.840.9300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations.|
|Monday, April 8th at 8pm: Two of the most distinctive voices in today’s klezmer scene are coming together for an evening of evocative, bizarre, and soulful songs. When singer-songwriter-accordionist-novelist Geoff Berner (Vancouver) and the charismatic “avant-bard”Psoy Korolenko (Moscow/New York) share the stage you know you’ll want to hear what happens! Presented in partnership with Arts Against Humanity and CKUT Radio.|
