Klezmer Concert

  • North Carolina Museum of History--Daniels Auditorium 5 East Edenton Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, Zoe & Cloyd is renowned fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist John Cloyd Miller. Their show is as diverse as their upbringing: coming from a lineage of Jewish klezmer and jazz musicians, Natalya trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts before moving south in 2004. John, a twelfth generation North Carolinian and grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler, Jim Shumate, is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest as well as an Artist Fellowship recipient for songwriting from the North Carolina Arts Council. Their Chanukah show at the NC Museum of History will feature a number of Jewish folk music songs from Natalya's family's repertoire.

This year's Music of the Carolinas series is highlighting Millennial Traditional Artists from a new project from the Folklife Program of the North Carolina Arts Council. This directory highlights next generation traditional artists from the mountains, Piedmont, and coastal plains of North Carolina.
