Klezmer Jam with Featured Artist: Akiva Jacobs

October 15, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Hosted by Rebecca Mac & Mattias Kaufmann, members of the Boston based Klezmer ensemble; Mamaliga.

Featured Artist: Akiva Jacobs, Bass

Lately Akiva has been enjoying slowly writing songs by process of long walks and occasional journaling, as well as organizing weekly no-barrier-to-entry conduction sessions. They play upright bass and electric bass in a handful of rock and improvised-music bands that are all different combinations of the same six people who are mostly named Maya. Akiva is from Newton, MA and is a graduate of  Princeton University.

4:00 PM: Workshop

We’ll learn a tune together, slowly by ear. If you don’t know a lot of tunes, or you’re looking to add to your repertoire, this is a great opportunity for the Klez-pros and amateurs alike to learn something new!

5:30 PM: Jam

Bring a tune to lead, play along, do a dance, or just come to listen! More dancing will be led by Adah. All are welcome!

Followed by Reception with drinks & snacks!
