Poyln: A Gigul, Veretski Pass’s new project with Joel Rubin, uncovers the repertoire of pre-Holocaust traditional, previously lost, Polish-Jewish music. Veretski Pass has collaborated with the traditional Jewish clarinetist, Joel Rubin, to create a program of music that revitalizes the pieces and styles of music that were previously deemed lost, but recovered through the field work, archival research and scholarship of Joel Rubin, Cookie Segelstein, Stuart Brotman and Joshua Horowitz.

Veretski Pass is a trio of Jewish Music veterans who have been at the forefront of the klezmer revival for over 25 years. Their output spans the ultra-traditional to the avant garde.

Joel Rubin is considered to be one of the foremost clarinetists of the Klezmer Revival.

This project represents an important reunion, as Joel Rubin was part of both Brave Old World (with Stuart Brotman) and Rubin & Horowitz (with Joshua Horowitz). The reunification of these forces after so many years is a welcome addition to the post-klezmer revival!
