Cotham Club, Cotham Parish Church, Cotham Road, Bristol BS6 6DR
Last time Chai For All played at Cotham Club the audience wanted MORE! So here they are, with special guest Piotr Jordan on violin, joyous party energy and room to dance.
‘One of the most vibrant genres in world music. Yiddish music is the new rock & roll.’ The Guardian
A night of infectious entertainment mixing whirling klezmer - the rousing traditional Jewish music of eastern Europe - with powerful forgotten gems and bona fide classics of Yiddish song.
Special guest Polish-born virtuoso violinist Piotr Jordan leads the stirring klezmer instrumentals with his characteristic verve and attack; Marianna Moralis’ impassioned vocals drive the fabulous New York Yiddish theatre songs and cheerful singalongs; David Mowat (trumpet), Knud Stüwe (guitar) and Simon Leach (percussion) propel the sizzling dance arrangements with their impressive playing and enormous sense of fun.
With fantastic music, brilliant audience rapport and more than a touch of goodtime showbiz, this is a set guaranteed to raise the spirits and get you dancing.
