 San Francisco Yiddish Combo 

Instrumental workshop: Klezmer Tunes, Roots and Improvisation:
Join the San Francisco Yiddish Combo for a playing focused look at the world of Klezmer. Learn a little history and then play through a whole bunch of fun tunes. Also covered will be how to improvise to Klezmer music. Participants will need a basic knowledge of how to play their instrument and basic music reading abilities and not much else. No previous Klezmer experience needed. Music will be available in advance. Any instrument welcome. Chord charts provided for guitar style instruments. Cacophonous fun! 8 person minimum required.


The San Francisco Yiddish Combo (SFYC)  was formed by accident when a love of Klezmer music collided with their collective backgrounds in every genre except Klezmer. Now the SFYC is embarked on a journey around the world to present their own unique blend of everything that is Klezmer, mixed with years of experience in the jazz, blues, folk, and even hip hop world.

Made up of classically trained musicians who enjoy stretching musical boundaries, the SFYC is led by cellist Rebecca Roudman who has fronted groups all over the world bringing her virtuosic and fiery playing to stages from China to Iceland and beyond. Check out the SFYC for a fresh spin on Klezmer with plenty of recognizable nods to an eclectic mix of genres. Oh yeah, and great for dancing!
