New Klezmer Session at The Ducie

Hosted by L’chaim Kapelye. Monday 28 September 2015 at 8pm.

Calling all klezmer enthusiasts! Whether you are an experienced klezmorim, a beginner klezmorim, a dabbler in folk/gypsy/balkan music, or simply intrigued as to what is klezmer, then this session at The Ducie Arms is for you.

This is the first klezmer session ever to be held at this location, and our aim is to get a monthly jam going so that more people can enjoy the Eastern European Yiddish tradition. It will be a very informal session and anyone is welcome. All you need to do is bring your selves, your voice and/or instrument, and a bit of ££ to buy some drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) to keep you going.

The session will begin around 8pm, but if you need to arrive later, then that is not a problem. If you are a UoM muso are worried about instruments we can also let you back into the MHC with our powers of 24hr postgrad access!

Spread the word by passing this on to anyone who you think may enjoy exploring the klezmer tradition! Any questions, please do not hesitate to message L’chaim Kapelye!

7th *‘Michael Kahan Music Day’* – 1st June, The Carlton Club – Manchester

Dear all

It’ll be 6 years since Michael died and it still means as much as on
the first day to know that so many other people remember and miss him.
It’s especially nice to see that it has grown over the years and so
many people who didn’t know Michael enjoy this event too!

The *‘Michael Kahan Music Day’* is a day to get together in a very
informal environment, make and enjoy music and remember Michael. It is
also an opportunity for me to thank you all for the support that I
have received from all the wonderful people who helped to keep the
‘Michael Kahan Music Day’ going.

This year, the 7th *‘Michael Kahan Music Day’* will be taking place:
From: 4:00pm till late evening
On: Sunday,1st *June 2014*
