The Tarras Band (New York)

The Tarras Band

Canadian Premiere

Sunday September 2, 6pm, Redpath Stage, FREE

Showcasing klezmer legend Peter Sokolow on piano, The Tarras Band is an exciting new klezmer ensemble from Brooklyn, New York performing the music of the late, great clarinetist/composer Dave Tarras and clarinetist Naftule Brandwein. Pete performed regularly with Tarras from the late 1950s through the 1980s. Also featured are Jim Guttman (Klezmer Conservatory Band) on bass, Dave Licht (Klezmatics) on drums, Ben Holmes (Klez Dispensers) on trumpet, and Michael Winograd (Socalled, Budowitz) on clarinet. This is their Toronto debut, and they are thrilled to present their new self-titled release.
