Heartland Klezmorim began their musical journey in 2006, performing old-time klezmer music. Since that time, their repertoire has expanded to performing music from the Yiddish theater, Yiddish/klezmer swing, and jazz interpretations of klezmer music.
Between 2009 and 2015, Heartland Klezmorim was the pit band for the Little Darlins’ Vaudeville Show, performing klezmer and old-time swing music accompanying jugglers, magicians, dancers, and singers. Heartland Klezmorim has accompanied silent films at the Capital City Film Festival and has played klezmer music for traditional contra-dancing at the Wheatland Traditional Arts Weekend and the Looking Glass Dance Festival.
Besides performing at private events, Heartland Klezmorim has performed at a variety of venues & festivals. They have performed at the Ten Pound Fiddle, the Great Lakes Folk Festival, the Wheatland Traditional Arts Weekend, and the East Lansing Summer Concert Series. Heartland Klezmorim has released two CD’s.
