Last week, the Grammy Award winning klezmer band The Klezmatics performed in our KPBS studios and talked with These Days host Tom Fudge about their varied musical interests. The Klezmatics won a Grammy in 2006 for their album of Woody Guthrie tunes, called Wonder Wheel . They've also collaborated on an album of gospel tunes with singer Joshua Nelson . Though The Klezmatics mix it up with muscial genres, they always retain a basic klezmer or Jewish cultural spirit in their music. Enjoy their performance.
