The Casco Bay Tummlers w/ special guest Jamie Saft!
You loved them so much last fall, the local legends are returning for another raucous klezmer spectacle, joined by virtuoso pianist, keyboardist, producer, & composer, Jamie Saft.
In the spirit of the season, this concert will include a number of classic Chanukah songs - in both Yiddish and Ladino - plus some great traditional klezmer with the Tummlers groove, and some wonderful improvisational klezmer featuring Jamie on keyboards.
The Casco Bay Tummlers are well known for inspiring and soulful performances that range from traditional klezmer to related roots genres - to original music that stretches those boundaries.
Jamie Saft's stylistic versatility, multi-instrumentalist capabilities, and production skills have been featured with Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, HR, The B-52s, John Zorn, John Adams, Laurie Anderson, Donovan, Antony and the Johnsons, and Iggy Pop. Saft leads the New Zion Trio, Jamie Saft Trio, and Jamie Saft Quartet. Saft has collaborated with legends of music including Wadada Leo Smith, Roswell Rudd, Marshall Allen, Danny Ray Thompson, Dave Liebman, Joe Morris, Hamid Drake, Bobby Previte, Steve Swallow, Darryl Jenifer, and Cyro Baptista.
