“The Yiddish Song Project should be fascinating for anyone interested in the rediscovery of beautiful, historically significant music. More than that, though, the artists put it across with such flair, commitment and obvious affection, that audiences cannot fail to go away inspired.

“Their highly professional presentation was both entertaining and enlightening, and the standard of musicianship inspiring. Their commitment and dedication to this field of research is obvious and infectious, and after the event, students were buzzing with excitement and enthusiasm…”

“The Yiddish Folksong Project introduced students to a world of musical sounds they had never heard before. …The group presented a varied programme that addressed the most painful aspects of Jewish history in the twentieth century and balanced these songs with more light-hearted numbers… I highly recommend this group for workshops and performances on the cultural significance and re-contextualization of folksong in the contemporary world.”
