ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ceilizemer: Shalom Ireland

"What happens when you combine Irish and Jewish music? CeiliZemer, of course!"
Fiona Ritchie, The Thistle and Shamrock (March, 2006)

artists:

--David Kidron (fiddle, whistle, vocal)
--Andy Rubin (5-string and tenor banjos, mandolin, guitar and vocal)
--Vince Wolfe (flute, B uillean pipes, whistle, guitar, bodhran)
--Lewis Santer (guitar, bouzouki, mandolin)

with help from:

--LaRita Craft (accordion)
--Julie Hochman (cello)
--Sean Feder (percussion)
--Shawn King (recording engineer, hand claps)

To combine traditional Irish music with klezmer is a compelling, but little explored, idea. Nonetheless, there are several of us in Northern California who enjoy the craic and the krekht, the hornpipe and the hora, or in other words, could be called "Klez-Maureen". Imagine, then, our excitement when we heard that a documentary about the Jewish community of Ireland needed a soundtrack! A few days after giving the filmmaker, Valerie Lapin Ganley, our respective CDs ("The Flower of Berezin" by The Freilachmakers Klezmer String Band, which includes David Kidron and Andy Rubin, and "The Welcoming Table" by the Irish band Driving With Fergus, which includes Lewis Santer and Vince Wolfe) and performing during a screening of the rough-cut of "Shalom Ireland", Valerie signed us on. We brought in Julie Hochman, LaRita Craft and Sean Feder, and called ourselves Ceilizemer ("ceili" for an Irish dance party; "zemer", Hebrew for song). We're proud of the results, which combine the joy and heartbreak of two genres in ways we hope you'll find pleasing.

interesting and fun
The idea of blending these two musical styles is inspired. Since the tonalities of the the genres are the same, they blend together nicely and this combined group plays it well. The experimental exploration of style and harmony is fascinating. The blending of two traditions is always difficult and this CD proves not only that it is possible, but a worthwhile experiment for others to emulate. Despite the fact that not all of the tracks gel very well, overall it is still a great CD.

Interesting Klezmer with An Irish Flair
I enjoyed the mix and the innovative use of non traditional instrumentation. Good effort.

Vincent McHugh

Loved the blend of two fine traditions
The music of my childhood in Ireland lives in my soul. Since coming to America I have learned a great deal about Jewish heritage, traditions and music. This album is a wonderful merging of these two passions.

Margot Hilton

Unadulterated aural delight!
To a nice Jewish girl from London, who lives in Oz and who has been playing Irish fiddle for ten years, Ceilizemer was just what the doctor ordered. But more provenance in the album notes is wanted and a run-down of the instruments played on each track incorporated into the track details rather than appended to the artists' photos. Above all, more music! What's next?

j

perfection...absolute perfection!!!
i couldn't be happier or more fortunate that i discovered this cd when i did (thankfully from an ad for the film on kcrw.) i am getting married soon and this is going to be the perfect soundtrack to our celtic/jewish wedding. there's a beautiful simplicity in the arrangments and production...almost as if the musicians are playing in the room with you. highly recommended!!!

Nichole

Great CD
Hauntingly beautiful - had everybody at my office stopping by to ask about it.

Cynthia Cohen

What a treasure of music from Ireland
We bought this CD after attending a screening of the movie. The music was so lovely we had to have the CD. Have listened many times, will listen often, recommend to any fan of Irish or Jewish music.

Joan

Excellent album
Very enjoyable music, professional sounding recording. A real pleasure for fans of both Jewish and Irish music, hearing Jewish melodies played on traditionally Irish instruments.

Jim Campbell

Interesting effort....was expecting more fusion of the music styles
Interesting idea and effort....need for more fusion of the two musical styles in all of the songs....look forward to a second CD!
