All SOLD OUT. Thanks for your support.
Come spend your Labour Monday afternoon listening to a live and unplugged performance with the Klezmer Rebs at the intimate Mana Little Theatre in Plimmerton.
Reb David says the venue offers the band the opportunity to play two sets with some of their slower, sweeter and more poignant songs, as well as revisiting the classic Klezmer Rebs repertoire of yiddish klezmer, ethnic folk, Roma, Ladino and quirky Rebs originals.
The quaint Mana Little Theatre is a lovely little venue, with just 49 seats available. Book early as it is likely to sell out. Door sales may not be available.
So join David, Rose, Urs, Rob, Jonathan, Amanda and new violinist Alex for a special afternoon with the Klezmer Rebs.
