About L'chaim Kapelye

Klezmer band
Manchester

L'chaim Kapelye is a 6-piece ensemble based in Manchester, who specialise in infectious dance tunes and soulful songs of the klezmer and yiddish folksong tradition. We have played at a variety of events in partnership with local Jewish organisations such as the Muslim-Jewish Forum and the Manchester Jewish Museum. We regularly meet at the Manchester Jewish Museum for the "Gathering of the Klezmorim" events, where we perform alongside other keen Klezmer-lovers in the area. We have also participated in fundraising ventures for the University of Manchester RAG (Raise And Give) society and work closely with the FED, participating in reminiscence sessions in Jewish care homes around Manchester. We will be collaborating with the MJM next summer with the Jewish-meets-Irish events in Manchester. We regularly play at private functions (Bar Mitzvahs, Dances and Weddings).
