    Can’t believe you’re talking about Klezmer! I own Perlman’s In the Fiddler’s House and just adore it. Perlman is a flat-out genius.I have a love affair with Israel, anyway. My father also played the clarinet (and I tried, when I was younger, but failed…). I love Benny Goodman and, Klezmer. :-)

    Love Klezmer, as well. Family background is Polish and have always wondered whether going back far enough would reveal Jewish ancestry. I’ve always been drawn to Jewish culture.

    I once met Jew who plays Irish traditional music: he joked that somewhere there must be an Irish guy who plays klezmer. I don’t know about an Irishman, but my husband is of Scottish ancestry, and he played keyboard in a klezmer band for about six months when he was in high school (he’d do it again if he could find anyone else to play with him).
