"Early and traditional Jewish music, Klezmer, Yiddish, Sephardi and Middle Eastern music
'The UK's most widely acclaimed Jewish music band'
VENUE MAGAZINE, USA
'Burning Bush offers the original World Music where Europe, Africa and the Orient freely mingle'
Exhuberance, defiance, celebration and ribald wit all come together on the emotional rollercoaster ride that is a Burning Bush performance. Combining foot-tapping klezmer, exotic Arab-influenced dance music from the old Ottoman world and haunting, mystical ballads of the ghetto, The Burning Bush cross cultural boundaries with their uninhibited brio in music both timeless and topical. Featuring the amazing voice and sinuous violin of Lucie Skeaping and the breathtaking, unbridled virtuosity of clarinettist Ben Harlan, this multi-talented sextet presents music that is impossible to resist whatever your background, as audiences from Bogata to rural Wiltshire will confirm. A magical journey into nostalgia, hope and joy.
