Laoise Davidson

Contributors

We went back to our roots and celebrated the folktales and folk tunes of Yiddish yore with the Jewish Community Centre’s tribute troupe. Storyteller Mekella Broomberg and actors Daniel Hart and Oliver Meek weaved Yiddish yarns while musicians Laoise Davidson and James Siverly played live Klezmer in this reworked version of the show, a sell out of last season’s programme at the JCC.
