Klezmer Night! The Casco Bay Tummlers with Sruli and Lisa
The Tummlers have a unique sound and a stage performance that features all members of the band. Steve Gruverman brings an extensive background in ethnic dance music to his soulful clarinet playing. Carl Dimow has developed a unique klezmer flute style, making the instrument an equal solo voice in the music. John Clark is an incredibly versatile bass playereverything from symphony to surfperfect for the Tummlers eclectic approach to klezmer. Nancy Hoffman brings a playfulness which audiences love to both her accordion playing and her singing. Peter McLaughlin keeps the traditional role as drummer happening with elements of jazz and improvisation.

The band's repertoire is versatile, ranging from original music to traditional dances and songs of the Yiddish theater and Jewish ghetto - all with original arrangements. The Tummlers have toured in Germany where they performed to sold-out houses at the Hackesches Hof Theater in Berlin and at the ninth annual Festival of Jewish Culture in Chemnitz. They have also performed in Lithuania, Slovenia and Italy.

"This is true folk music of the Klezmer kind, paying tribute to the deep roots of the music from Eastern Europe and beyond. Fun and frolic, but also pathos and yearning abound. This is emotionally charged music, played with abandon by musicians who are clearly comfortable with each other." -Elizabeth Watson, Greater Boston Flute Association

Part of MSA's International Heritage Series. Based on the idea that music is inherent to strengthening community in cultures around the world, the series will celebrate regional music and dance traditions.
