July 12 - July 15

Some events have started to sell out, but a limited number of tickets are still available for concerts, talks, and workshops. Tickets can be purchased for individual events online, or over the phone at 413-256-4900.

The seventh annual Yidstock: The Festival of New Yiddish Music will feature a headlining performance by David Krakauer’s Acoustic Klezmer Quartet that draws from and emphasizes the beauty of traditional klezmer dance tunes, ritual songs, and reflective melodies, all given the ineffable David Krakauer touch.

The four-day festival—July 12 to 15, at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts—will also include performances by a diverse group of groundbreaking, innovative bands and performers: Heather Klein & Joshua Horowitz; Tsvey Brider, featuring Anthony Russell & Dmitri; David Krakauer’s Klezmer Madness Reunion Concert, with special guest Socalled; Beyond the Pale; Sarah Aroeste and Anthony Russell; and the Socalled String Quartet.
