Walkers to Support March 2nd Scottish Early Jewish Gypsy Klezmer and Contemporary Klezmer Traditions Concert in New York City
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
In celebration of the Jewish presence in Scotland and Scotlands recent award of the Jewish Tartan to the Jews of Scotland, the Museum at Eldridge Street will feature a concert of Scottish Jewish baroque and klezmer music in Spring 2014, to be sponsored by Walkers Shortbread. The event will feature Walkers Shortbreads all natural, certified kosher OUD shortbread cookies at a traditional Scottish-Jewish reception following the event.
Were honored to sponsor an event so closely connected to Scottish heritage, says President of Walkers Shortbread, Inc., Steve Dawson. This was a natural fit for us and were thrilled to celebrate the close links between Scottish and Jewish history and culture.
The concert will trace the early music of the East European Jews as well as early baroque influences on klezmer Scottish music. Part of the Museum at Eldridge Streets popular Lost and Found Music Series, the concert will take place in the National Historic Landmark 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue, which recently underwent a 20-year, $20 million restoration. The event takes place on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. at 12 Eldridge Street, between Canal and Division Streets, in Manhattans Lower East Side historic immigrant neighborhood.
