In 1997, three friends who played string instruments and shared a common interest in learning traditional Jewish folk music began getting together on Sunday mornings. From this seed, a band has grown and the Sinai Mountain Ramblers are proud to call themselves “The only Klezmer band in Guilford County.” Clarinet was added to the original string trio in 1999. This really filled out the sound and allowed the band to dramatically expand its repertoire. In 2011, Sinai Mountain Ramblers became the first klezmer band to perform at Merlefest, one of the largest music festivals in the southeast.
Performances by the Sinai Mountain Ramblers includes lots of traditional Klezmer tunes from Eastern Europe as well as original compositions and contemporary Jewish folk songs. The group has performed for dances and concerts at restaurants, coffee houses, private parties, music festivals, and religious services as well as nursing homes, museums, libraries and various fund raisers and benefit concerts.
