The Jansen Art Center is pleased to bring Millie & the Mentshn to Lynden after their sold out concert in Bellingham last April. If you have seen Fiddler on the Roof then you have heard Klezmer music. Enjoy an evening of this exciting style of music in conjunction with heartwarming stories and a one-of-a-kind slide show.

Millie & the Mentshn is a group of classically trained musicians who play world music that ranges from Prokofiev to Gershwin to Latin to dance-in-the-aisle Klezmer. Audiences of all cultural backgrounds enjoy the unusual combination of instruments, the intricate harmonies, and the variety of musical styles and traditions.

Even for those unfamiliar with this musical genre, Irving Berlin, Bach, Piazzolla, and Gershwin will appear among others in the tangled web of the story from Gypsies to cowboys to baseball.

"Heavy Mettle: From Shtetl to Tin Pan Alley" follows the history of Klezmer musicians from the late 1800s through the 1900s as they assimilate into the New World.

Program Description:
The Jews left the shtetls (villages) of Eastern Europe and arrived in the New World bearing the gift of Klezmer. The music they had passed down from generation to generation over centuries quickly blended with the sounds in their host country. In Argentina it merged with tango. In the U.S. it fused with jazz, swing, Dixieland, and Gospel.

What became of the children in immigrant families such as Jacob and Israel Gershovitz, Israel Beiline, and Aliza Greenblatt and what was their influence on our current popular music? Surprises may be in store when their adopted New World names are revealed.
