The London Klezmer Quartet Live in Concert at 1930s Metropole Guesthouse
The London Klezmer Quartet brings you klezmer, the celebratory and soulful music of Eastern European Jews, at its most beguiling and seductive. The subtleties of the original tradition, combined with a kick-the-chairs-over ability to party.
LKQ is a dynamic group of performers much in demand on the UK folk, world and pop music scenes. The band’s deep understanding 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.
Formed in 2009, the band is already popular throughout the UK, has had five sell-out tours in Australia, as well as performing in Brazil, Germany, Holland, Latvia, New Zealand and Switzerland, and has broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 & 6, BBC TV, and ABC Radio.
