Since their first concert in Brooklyn in 2006, Eleonore Biezunski (violin, vocals) and Pete Rushefsky (tsimbl) have teamed up to explore the richness of traditional klezmer and Yiddish folksong. The duo performs rare repertoire from 19th and early 20th century collections of Jewish folklore as well as original klezmer tunes. Together, they have performed at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, at the American Folk Art Museum, Museum at Eldridge Street, Temple Beth Emeth, Barbès, Jalopy Theater and have busked in parks and shores of New York.
