*Opening Night: Sept. 13 Jake Shulman-Ment Band*
Violinist Jake Shulman-Ment is among the leaders of a new generation of
Klezmer and Eastern European folk music performers. His versatility as a
violinist, composer, improvisor, teacher, and folk
music researcher has established him as one of the world’s leading
practitioners of the klezmer violin. As a child in New York, Jake’s
immersion in Yiddish culture and the klezmer revival movement, as
well as rock, jazz, and classical music, formed him into an eclectic
musician with multiple influences at work simultaneously. In an effort to
explore more deeply the roots of the Jewish music he grew up
with, Jake has done extensive research and study with Roma musicians in
Romania and Hungary. He has synthesized his experiences and travels into an
original sound, sometimes departing quite far into a realm of
experimentation, but always remaining true to his deep roots in traditional
Jewish music.
