Favourite Irish and Jewish Songs
by Carl Nelkin

This album presents a selection of favorite Irish and Jewish songs featuring melodies from the Yiddish theater. The themes — love, laments, celebrations and ‘craic’ (Irish for good fun) — weave a thread of commonality between the Irish and the Jewish cultures. There are unique Irish interpretations of Jewish songs which employ traditional Irish musical instruments.
