One of Canada’s most innovative acoustic ensembles brings a Klezmer and Balkan music experience shaped by everything from jazz and classical music to bluegrass and reggae.

Beyond The Pale

And now for something completely different for Placitas Artists Series!  Beyond The Pale, one of Canada’s longest-running and most innovative acoustic roots ensembles, comes to Las Placitas Presbyterian Church for an exuberant Klezmer and Balkan musical experience with sounds shaped by everything from jazz and classical music to bluegrass and reggae.  Their stellar musicianship and unique songcraft can range from raucous roar to intimate chamber-folk styles.  In their 22 years together, their collective sound along with the deep and generous bonds of creativity distinguish them as three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners. (seven-time nominees). They have toured extensively across Canada, the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Brazil. Reviewers write, “…a bracingly modern, mind-blowing flight into a very new Jewish_Balkan sonic atmosphere.” (LA Weekly).
