Cathartic Klezmer with Yankl Falk & Geoff Berner

February 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Singer / songwriter / accordionist / novelist Geoff Berner’s music combines klezmer, punk, political satire and Balkan dance rhythms. He writes sharp, literate songs that make you want to weep, laugh, grind your teeth, or kick out a window – often all at the same time. Berner has built a serious cult following throughout North America and Europe by touring relentlessly through thousands of bars, caf├ęs and festivals. With his weirdly compelling stage presence, he has a strange ability to create fun chaos.

Jack (Yankl) Falk and Friends
Jack (Yankl) Falk is best known for his years as singer/clarinetist with the Budapest-based Di Naye Kapelye, with whom he recorded three albums of Jewish roots music from the Carpathians. Falk’s instrumental and vocal repertoire draws from the Yiddish- and Hungarian-speaking world of his childhood, offering musical sustenance for the truly bizarre times in which we now find ourselves. Music for celebration, mystical chant, raucous songs of drunken exuberance, and so much more….. Featuring Ralph Huntley (keyboards), Courtney von Drehle (accordion/sax), Ji Tanzer (percussion), and special guest Andrew Ehrlich (violin).
