The Kosher Red Hots open the treasury of Jewish music. They embrace a timeless world-café of folk songs, whirlwind klezmer music from Eastern Europe, Judeo-Spanish romances from the eastern Mediterranean, and songs from New York's Yiddish theater. They have collaborated with NPR's Susan Stamberg and have inspired dancing in the aisles on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.

Carl Shutoff (clarinet in C) and Laurie Andres (accordion) constitute the Kesselgarden Klezmer Duo in Seattle, WA, where we have been playing together for the last 16 years. Our name comes from the way Yiddish-speaking Jews pronounced "Castle Garden", the facility on the southern tip of Manhattan where Jewish immigrants entered this country prior to the opening of Ellis Island in 1892.

Don Baragiano performs a multi-cultural blend of enticing, upbeat music. His performance creates a diverse musical tour from around the world…and the audience doesn’t even need a passport.

Don lived and worked in Saudi Arabia for 3 years. There he learned about their culture and music, which is instrumental in helping him to recreate some of those exotic innovative sounds on his guitar.
