GUEST,Gary Playing kletzmer music (klezmer) (40) Playing kletzmer music 04 Nov 06

Advice sought ....

Having heard & enjoyed a little Kletzmer music I'm starting to play little (on english concertina)

I'd like to include a few tunes at sessions, 2 guidelines have come to mind,

1 - don't play in public until I can do a good job

2 - research the tune & don't play anything that would be disrespectful

However, I know very little about Judaism, & don't know anybody that I know is Jewish, so don't have anyone to ask.

In terms of tunes to possibly play publically, I'm thinking of the lively, celebratory ?wedding tunes.

Any information would be gratefully received.
