Last Tuesday was Holocaust Memorial Day and to mark the occasion Leamington Music presented She'Koyokh, “one of London’s musical treasures, playing the best Balkan and klezmer music in Britain” (The Evening Standard). This was a real celebration of Eastern European music, including Jewish klezmer, the whole audience was won over by their energy and enthusiasm and I was not the only one wanting to get up and dance. Worth checking out! They're playing for Shropshire Music Trust at Shrewsbury School on 21 February.
Jill Davies has spent most of her life immersed in music, from sitting under the piano while her mum gave lessons to taking up the ukulele a couple of years ago. She's an agent (mainly for singers) by day, has a personal record of going to 12 concerts in 3 days, and can't decide whether it's more fun to sing Elgar partsongs or play Gibbons viol consorts.
