THE LONDON KLEZMER QUARTET

The London Klezmer Quartet

Sun 11th March

The London Klezmer Quartet is a dynamic group of performers whose deep understanding of klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, is reflected in exuberant, passionate and accomplished performances that captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

The group plays old and new traditional material guaranteed to move audiences from toe-tapping to tears and back again in moments.

LKQ was formed in 2009 by a group of klezmer specialists keen to explore the almost-lost wedding music tradition of Jewish eastern Europe. The band was swiftly picked up by some of the UK’s foremost folk & world music promoters - Songlines Magazine, Continental Drifts and The Magpie’s Nest offered stages for the group's unique combination of artistry and exuberance. The band is also one of the few in the world who lead the Yiddish dances that this music would traditionally have accompanied.

The band has played many UK venues and festivals, and has opened Jewish music festivals in Sao Paolo Brazil (Kleztival), Gelsenkirchen and Munich. The band has also had five successful tours in Australia, playing to packed houses in six states, headlining at the National Folk Festival in Canberra two years running and at Port Fairy Folk Festival in 2013. The band has also toured in New Zealand and Latvia. LKQ is part of UK rural touring schemes in Dorset, Gloucestershire, the north of England and Wales; the band performs regularly for charity 'Music in Hospitals', and Breathe Arts Health Research.

UK venues the London Klezmer Quartet has appeared in include Cafe Oto, the Green Note, Kings Place, Rich Mix, Southbank Centre, Victoria & Albert Museum and the Vortex Jazz Club. Festivals include Blysh Festival (Wales), Kings Place Festival, Klezfest, Songlines Festival, and Women of the World Festival.
