- Front Premier
The 9th annual Atlanta Jewish Music Festival (AJMF9) begins with a celebration of Yiddish classics, Klezmer dances and more from the Ashkenazi tradition performed by virtuosic duo Tsvey Brider and internationally acclaimed group Beyond the Pale.
Diverse idioms, styles and periods contrast and combine in Tsvey Brider (Two Brothers, Anthony Russell and Dmitri Gaskin), creating contemporary, idiosyncratic and unique interpretations of music in the Yiddish language. Recent winners of the Concorso Internacional de Canciones en Idish (Der Idisher Idol) the members of Tsvey Brider have performed and recorded with such noted artists as Anthony Coleman, Daniel Kahn, Michael Winograd, Michael Alpert, Alan Bern, Yale Strom & Hot Pastrami and Veretski Pass.
Beyond the Pale is one of Canada's most innovative and exciting acoustic roots ensembles. Klezmer and balkan styles serve as the point of departure for their genre-defying sound, which is shaped by everything from jazz and classical music to bluegrass and reggae. With stellar musicianship, unique songcraft and exuberant energy, Beyond the Pale’s music can range from a raucous roar to the most intimate and dynamic “chamber-folk.” Celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2018, Beyond the Pale are three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners, and have toured extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, Australia and Brazil. Beyond the Pale features Aleksandar Gajic (violin), Bret Higgins (bass), Milos Popovic (accordion), Eric Stein (mandolin), and Martin van de Ven (clarinet).
