ABOUT THE MUSICIANS

Michael Alpert is a Klezmer musician, Yiddish singer, multi-instrumentalist, scholar and educator and is a key figure in the klezmer revival of the 1970s and 1980s. Originally from the US, he is now based in Scotland. Drawn from his family heritage and his own travels through the cultures and terrain of Europe and The Americas, his performances are sojourns through inner and outer landscapes, sagas of immigrant journey and epics of the universal search for home.

Sasha Lurje is one of the leading voices in the contemporary Yiddish scene, and has performed and taught at numerous festivals in Europe and America. Growing up speaking Slavic and Baltic languages, she has a unique old world perspective on this repertoire, which perhaps is part of why she has become one of the only specialists in Yiddish lyric songs and ballads. She was born in Riga, Latvia and has been singing since she was 3 years old. She coordinates the song programme at the Yiddish Summer Weimar, the world-leading Yiddish and Klezmer festival.

Craig Judelman grew up in Seattle, studying violin and folk music from around the world. He currently performs with Litvakus, one of the only klezmer bands devoted to Litvak music, music from the northern European region of Jewish settlement. He has studied with David Krakauer of the Klezmatics and Yale Strom, and learned "on the bandstand" from some of the best Klezmer musicians including Michael Alpert, Mark Rubin, and Pete Rushefsky.
