Some years ago I had the privilege of playing a concert (symphony player) with Cherish the Ladies. I will never forget them standing backstage after the concert thanking each of us as we came off the stage for "getting it." I still am a huge fan of theirs and follow Joannie Madden's work with anticipation. I am thrilled for your opportunity!!!

    PS - I play Klezmer clarinet on the side….
    Well, that makes two of us! I thought I was the only person in the world who plays klezmer in a kilt, but maybe not!

    I also play pennywhistles and bodhran, though I'm terribly out of practice on the drum.

    I hope it is somehow comforting (and perhaps slightly disturbing at the same time) to know that there is another of your species out there….. I thought I was wandering alone in the Klezmer/kilt desert, always looking for the perfect reed and the next great improv moment…..

    Based on the review of the OP I drove 150 miles (round trip) and enjoyed her show tremendously last night . She was generous of spirit and heart and her musicianship excelled. I am grateful for the serendipity of the occasion. ( I was only looking for tartan info when I logged on)
