3 days of jams, concerts, and workshops in Yiddish song, dance and klezmer music.

Bringing the world’s leading performers and instructors of Yiddish music to Seattle, Seattle Yiddish Fest is an intensive workshop in the vocal and instrumental music of Eastern European Jewish culture, and the language and dance that go with them.


Open to everyone, regardless of experience, religion or anything else, this workshop will cover a lot of ground in a short time, offering the beginner a crash course in this rich culture, or for those more experienced, a chance to really understand the subtleties of this culture and find new areas for growth. ​


There is a growing global scene of Yiddish musicians and unfortunately, not everyone can make it to KlezKanada or Yiddish Summer Weimar, so we’re bringing faculty from both to Seattle. The workshop will be split between group sessions and smaller classes, functioning as two parallel workshops for vocalists and instrumentalists, with further subdivisions based on instrument or level, as needed.
