This week at The Buttonwood Tree...

Friday, October 25

Klezwoods & Jeni Joi
8 - 10 pm, $12 in advance/$15 at door

Klezwoods is an amalgam of strings, horns and percussion that melds the spirit of traditional klezmer and Balkan music with modern grooves, improvisation and original repertoire.  Every player comes from a different background, which creates the band’s unique sound and style.  They originally got their start some years back when local Cambridge, MA haunt, Atwoods Tavern, wanted music for a “Klezmer Christmas” event.  Since that fateful day, Klezwoods has played The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., The Helsinki Klezmer Festival in Finland, and tours regularly all over the Northeast playing festivals and concerts!
