Klezmatic documentary screening at Mariposa Museum, Peterborough
“The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground,” a feature-length documentary on the Grammy Award-winning klezmer band, will screen at the Mariposa Museum on Saturday at 7 p.m.
The film follows the band for more than three years, capturing their highs, lows and relentless march forward.
The Klezmatics have made numerous television and radio appearances, including PBS’s Great Performances series with Itzhak Perlman, and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion on NPR.
In 2006 the band released “Wonder Wheel: Lyrics by Woody Guthrie.”
It was the their first English language LP which won a Grammy Award for Best World Music.
The music’s vision is embedded in the very process of continuing to do the work itself, usually against formidable odds.
Admission is $10 and $7 for Mariposa members.
