Margot's in New Mexico!

Las Cruces Wins! If you ask Abq Jew, this is the best New Mexico klezmer (and bluegrass!) news in years. And the news has arrived just in time for the Festival of Sukkot - the Season of Our Rejoicing!

Yes, it's true!
Margot Leverett is now in New Mexico!

Margot Leverett is one of the foremost clarinetists of the klezmer revival. Classically trained at Indiana University School of Music, she was a founding member of the Klezmatics in 1985 before moving on to establish a solo career.

Margot, "a klezmer clarinet virtuoso," was a staff instructor at KlezKamp for over 10 years, and has also taught at KlezKanada, Klezkamp West, KlezmerQuerque, and at colleges, music festivals, and Jewish organizations across the country and Europe.

Margot currently teaches clarinet at White's Music Box in Las Cruces, and is available in New Mexico (and anywhere in the world) for gigs, concerts, and workshops - solo, or with her group, the illustrious Klezmer Mountain Boys.

With whom - let's swing into Yontif!
