Klezmer meets gospel at the signature event of The Village Trip!  with special guest Joshua Nelson, the “Prince of Kosher Gospel”. The Reverend Billy and the Choir of the Church of Stop Shopping are also on the bill for what promises to be an unforgettable afternoon of music.

“The Klezmatics are thrilled to be a part of this year’s Village Trip Festival,” said Lorin Sklamberg, a founding member of The Klezmatics. “It is especially meaningful since The Village Trip is expanding to include the East Village, whose kinetic energy was so vital to the band’s genesis in the 1980s. We are also beyond excited for the opportunity to present Brother Moses Smote the Water, our ecstatic collaboration with the mighty Prince of Kosher Gospel,’ Joshua Nelson, as part of our Washington Square Park debut.”

No tickets needed – just grab your dancing shoes and shimmy on down to Garibaldi Plaza in Washington Square Park for an afternoon of great music and good fun!

This event is free to attend, but we suggest a $10 donation to The Village Trip.
