Blue Moon Klezmer Band was organized by clarinetist Richard MacDonald in the spring of 2017 for a performance at the Stoughton Art Walk. Since then, the group has performed at the Stoughton Public Library, several Stoughton parks, for Make Music Stoughton, and at the Stoughton Opera House. Klezmer is the traditional music of celebration from the Jewish people of Eastern Europe. The genre consists mainly of instrumental dance tunes for weddings and other celebrations. “Klezmer” is Hebrew for “vessel of song” – the musicians through whom the music flows.
Les Cordes en Blue is a Madison based acoustic string jazz trio. Their repertoire includes music inspired by the legendary Django Reinhardt as well as French swing and video game music. Their music will have you tapping your feet, feeling the groove, and maybe even dancing!
Suzuki Strings will perform an opening act from 1:30-2 p.m.
Darren Sterud is a Madison band leader and trombone player. He has shared the stage with such groups as B.B.
