June 10, 2014 A Taste of Yiddish Music at Accordions Around the World in Bryant Park

A good time was had by all who listened, sang along, clapped, or even danced a waltz or a tango or two (see second photo below).

Had a great time on the accordion, claviola, and melodica at this progressive Purim party with Robin Greenstein on the guitar, banjo, and doumbek! We played and sang in English, Yiddish, Hebrew, and Ladino, and the crowd sang along and danced. Elena Schwolsky made and displayed cue cards to aid in the sing-along. Steve Suffet updated the Purim story with humor. What fun!
