Live performance of 'Uncle Moses' by The Isle of Klezbos sextet in Brooklyn, NY for KlezBiGay Pride show 2021. Excellent musicianship & wonderful video/recording! Hope to hear this group in person someday..

I like this very much. They play very well and are obviously accomplished musicians. There are so many styles of music and we only hear a small sampling of these styles. I remember being at a Macedonian wedding as a child and still remember the band which had mandolins and mandolas and were great entertainers and I still remember their energy and great sound.

Couldn't find the sixth musician to complete the sextet. Perhaps they're a quintet?

So true, Valski! So much music in the world, so little time. How lucky that you had a compelling experience like that as a kid.

From what I've learned on their website, I think this group usually performs with a vocalist (Melissa Fogarty). This instrumental piece might her chance to grab some water between tunes..;) :)(y)

Also very impressed with the word play in their name.
