Description: 

The dynamic and multi-faceted music of the Epstein Brothers, stars of "A Tickle in the Heart" and recipients of the prestigious 1998 National Heritage Award from the US National Endowment for the Arts, represents an exciting journey into the American-Jewish musical and cultural experience of the past 100 years. Max Epstein ranks as one of the greatest klezmer clarinetists of this century. Max and his brothers are considered to have been innovators in the fields of Yiddish, klezmer and Hasidic music: They brought their knowledge as American dance band players to klezmer music, transforming the celebratory music of the Eastern European shtetl into an urban expression of North American Jewry.
