London Klezmer Quartet: Bringing a touch of Eastern Europe to Tamworth.

London Klezmer Quartet: Bringing a touch of Eastern Europe to Tamworth.

If you feel like celebrating the toe-tapping, soulful music of Eastern Europe, you can’t miss London Klezmer Quartet.

Performing at both Capitol Theatre Tamworth and Bendemeer Town Hall as part of Tamworth Regional Council’s initiative, Capitol Theatre Presents, this dynamic group of performers has a deep understanding of klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews.

Their love of klezmer is reflected in exuberant, passionate and accomplished performances that captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

The group plays old and new traditional material guaranteed to move audiences from toe-tapping to tears and back again in moments.

The group is Ilana Cravitz (violin), Susi Evans (clarinet), Carol Isaacs (accordion) – all direct from the United Kingdom – and Aussie, Indra Buraczewska (double bass and vocals).

The band’s winning combination of exuberance and accomplishment has proven popular – within a year of its formation in 2009, the London Klezmer Quartet was being booked by leading UK world and folk music promoters and festivals. 

You can catch London Klezmer Quarter Capitol Theatre Tamworth tonight at 7.30pm.

Two new performances have this week been announced for two shows in Tamworth for Season 2018. The first is The 78-storey Treehouse, a favourite with all the kids and adapted from the book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. 

With yet another 13 levels, the treehouse has now got a Scribbletorium, a high-security potato chip storage facility (guarded by one very angry duck!) and even an open-air movie theatre. 

Lively and colourful and very funny, it’s a very clever show that all youngsters will love, with the team behind The 13-, 26- and 52-Storey Treehouses Live on Stage coming to Tamworth for the first time with the newest, biggest, brightest blockbuster in the series. 

The extra show was announced this week, making another great and fun way to enjoy children’s theatre with the family on Monday,  February 26 at 6pm. 

Also announced is an extra performance of The Wine Bluffs with Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja during Taste Festival Tamworth. 

You’ll become a wine connoisseur in one hilarious hour when you come on this riotous journey that lovingly lampoons wine snobbery in the historic Tamworth Memorial Town Hall’s The Passchendaele Room

The show will commence performances on Wednesday, April 11 and run right through the week until April 14 at 8pm.
