YIDDISH TWIST ORCHESTRA - UK

During the late 50s and early 60s, London was home to ‘der shvitz’ - a hallucinating mix of surf rock guitar, West Indian calypso, mambo, skiffle and Jewish folk. The Yiddish Twist Orchestra revive this one-off cultural collision. The band toured in February 2013, appearing at Colston Hall (Bristol), Rich Mix London, Sage Gateshead, Junction Cambridge, mac Birmingham, The Stables (Milton Keynes), The Apex (Bury), NCEM (York), Pontardarwe Arts Centre and Poole Lighthouse.
