Klezmer-ish is what happens when four classically trained musicians let their hair down, explore a wide range of music from travelling people across the world and fuse it all together into their own unique sound. Through exploring the music of immigrants from all sorts of musical and cultural backgrounds Klezmer-ish take their listeners on a musical journey through klezmer, tangos, gypsy jazz, Irish fiddle music, Italian folk music and much more.
Klezmer-ish are Tom Verity, Ron Shepley, Connie Del Vecchio and Marcel Becker, all of them members of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Their individual backgrounds and passions as people and musicians, and their rigorous training and nature of working shape their special style. There is much to explore in their incredibly diverse and unique repertoire. Original tunes are tailored and re-worked to their own personal taste, giving their arrangements an original twist.
Venue: Studio Theatre

"An irresistible musical journey from Buenos Aires and Paris to the Levant and the Emerald Isle... a real box of delights, played with evident pleasure by the band who take it in turn to step in to the spotlight with hugely enjoyable freewheeling solos which showcase their dexterity and talent" ★★★★ Arts City Liverpool (read the full review)
