Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe, and consists largely of instrumental dance tunes for weddings and other celebrations. The Blue Moon Klezmer Band was organized by Richard MacDonald in the spring of 2017 for the occasion of the Stoughton Art Walk. The band is well named, for it performs only once in a blue moon, and today marks the group’s second performance.
Roxanne Neat performs traditional and contemporary folk music and ballads. Accompanying herself on guitar, piano, mountain dulcimer, or five-strong banjo, Roxanne draws from Appalachian, Scottish, Irish, and English traditions.
