Enjoy a sweet and short online concert of Russian 7-string guitar music & Yiddish Song with Oleg Timofeyev playing in Iowa City, USA and Polina Shepherd singing in her house in Brighton, UK.
Oleg’s and Polina’s concerts in the UK this April didn’t happen and they won’t be able to play and sing together, but still – hear a lovely selection of Russian and Yiddish tunes.
This concert is part of Polina’s daily Sing With Me! Russian& Yiddish Song Class + Concerts 6pm UK time.
If there is anything you want to know about the Russian seven-string guitar (or semistrunka, as it often affectionately addressed), Oleg, an international authourity of the Russian and Gypsy guitar styles, knows the answers! Oleg will present 19-20 century instrumental music for Russian guitar played on an original instrument by Johann Scherzer made in 1860 (!).
Polina Shepherd will sing a few songs in Yiddish.
Not to be missed!
