The London Klezmer Quartet
The London Klezmer Quartet brings you the best of old and new Jewish music, taking you on a journey from the Baltic to the Black Sea - and beyond - played with soul and virtuosity on violin, clarinet, accordion and double bass, and featuring the sultry vocals of Indra Buraczewska.
Formed in 2009, the band is popular throughout the UK, has had six sell-out tours in Australia, and has appeared at festivals and concert venues in Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Holland, Latvia, New Zealand, Sweden and Switzerland, and has broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 & 6, BBC TV, and ABC Radio.

Southfleet first came together in 2014 as musicians and vocalists with a shared love of folk traditions from both sides of the North Atlantic. Distinguished by their rich and tightly executed harmonies, Southfleet draw from Irish, Scottish and Americana music as they sing traditional music in its most raw and captivating form. In 2015, the band recorded ‘The King’s Shilling’ for the UCLU Folk Society Compilation Album, receiving praise from the likes of FATEA, fRoots and Folk Radio UK. Having performed at Festival Number 6 and Cambridge Folk Festival in 2015, they have since been working on new and much anticipated material
