Songs of the Steppes & the Shtetl
with Polina Shepherd

Doors open at 7:30 pm
Program begins at 7:45 pm
Sponsored by the Yiddish Committee of Boston Workmens Circle

Come and enjoy an evening of Yiddish song and beyond with world music traveler Polina Shepherd. Experience an explosive mixture of powerful dance rhythms and profound melodies of the Steppes and the Shtetl spiced up by Tatar Bazaars and washed down with fishermens songs from Odessa

Born in Siberia and now based in London, Polina learned music as a child in a Russian Jewish home where songs were frequently sung at the family table after eating borsht and drinking homemade wine. Polina joined Russias first klezmer band in 60 years, Simcha, and soon became the principal Yiddish choir leader of the former Soviet Union, arranging and composing Yiddish material for large groups of voices and touring internationally with her Quartet Ashkenazim. Since moving to the UK in 2003, Polina continues to travel the world performing solo, as a duo with Merlin Shepherd, as a trio with Sklamberg & The Shepherds, and with many others. For her vocal power, she has been called the Robert Plant of Klezmer (Seth Rogovoy review). She now leads four choirs in and works as an educator teaching vocal workshops internationally. Her specially developed teaching methods are based on specific East European sound, ornamentation, modal experimentation with attention to stylistic details, history and context.

Come and learn a few songs with Polina, stretch your vocal muscles and sing along with her in performance or just be a guest. All are welcome!
