Canadian Folk Music Awards Festival: Beyond the Pale

Toronto's klezmer stars, Beyond the Pale, have released 3 award-winning CDs.  Their most recent, Postcards, has garnered 4 nominations from the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Awards.

On Friday, November 19, from 10:00 p. m. to 11:30 p. m., Winnipeg's Cultural City Hall is presenting a special concert with the klezmer wunderkinds, who have not performed in Winnipeg since 2001.

Tickets are $10.

For over a decade, Beyond the Pale's sextet has been making its distinctive brand of boundary-busting Eurofolk fusion, mixing Klezmer, Balkan, and Romanian styles with an eclectic range of North American influences, pushing the boundaries of contemporary acoustic roots music into new realms. 

Their exuberant live performances range from raucous dance rhythms to intricate chamber-folk dynamics, taking audiences on an invigorating musical ride with stunning virtuosity and thrilling arrangements. 

Beyond the Pale has performed at festivals, theatres, and clubs across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, including the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards, NY’s Carnegie Hall and the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, Poland. 

Have a great day.  How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
