Klezmer-ish ...Music of the Travellers

Sunday, 4 March 2018 - 7:30pm
 
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. Join them on a musical journey through klezmer, tangos, gypsy jazz, Irish fiddle music...and Italian folk music.
 
 
KLEZMER-ish
 
Tom Verity (Clarinets & Whistles):
 
Tom plays clarinet with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and is a member of the Sterling Trio. In his free time he loves playing jazz piano.
 
"The fusion of our rigorous background as classical musicians with our passion for exploring exciting new musical territories is what makes us special."
 
Rob Shepley (Guitar, Violin, Vocals):
 
Rob is the sub-principal viola of the RLPO ... but late at night he gets out his fiddle and guitar and plays anything from gypsy jazz to oldschool rock.
 
"We are fascinated by exploring the music and stories of immigrants from all sorts of musical and cultural backgrounds who left their homelands to travel the world in pursuit of a better life."
 
 
Concettina Del Vecchio (Piano Accordion, Violin)
 
Connie is a sub-principal violinist of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra, but she started her musical career on the piano accordion aged 3.
 
"As classical musicians we work in a hierarchical structure... no such thing with Klezmerish. All equals. No rules or regulations. All led by the music, and by the mutual respect we have for each others' talent."
 
Marcel Becker (Double Bass):
 
Marcel is the leader of the double bass section of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra – and a massive salsa fan!
 
"We get inspired by the original tunes but tailor them to our own personal taste, giving them our own twist. All the music is arranged by us and for us."
