Klezmer clarinetist Margot Leverett joins forces with todays stars of klezmer and bluegrass to explore the shared musical spirit of two genres literally worlds apart. Appalachian and southern fiddle tunes by Bill Monroe meet klezmer melodies from pre-war Russia and Eastern Europe, some newly discovered. The resulting medleys and improvisations are at once raw, funny, melancholic and footstomping. Featuring Margot Leverett on clarinet, Kenny Kosek on fiddle, and Joe Selly on guitar.
