Jinny Marsh's Hot Kugel Klezmer Band

Jinny Marsh's Hot Kugel Klezmer Band performs Klezmer music, a traditional form of Eastern European Jewish dance music with roots that pre-date the Middle Ages. In the early 1900’s Eastern Europe's Jewish community brought their music to the United States. Since then Klezmer has been mixed with American jazz and popular music, and continues to evolve. Modern groups like Hot Kugel are constantly innovating and applying modern jazz sensibilities to ancient Jewish melodies. Jinny Marsh's Hot Kugel Klezmer Band has appeared several times on the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage and in folk festivals in across the United States including the National folk festival in East Lansing, Michigan, and Lowell, Massachusetts.
