Editorial Reviews

Following on the heels of their Grammy Award-winning work with the Klezmatics, vocalists Susan McKeown and Lorin Sklamberg present Saints & Tzadiks -- a fascinating album combining Yiddish and Irish songs. Culled from the rare archive material and old recordings, McKeown and Sklamberg have selected songs on various themes from the Jewish and Irish traditions: love, death, betrothal, betrayal and the demon drink. The bulk of the Jewish material is drawn from the Ruth Rubin Archive at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, where Sklamberg serves as Sound Archivist. The Irish songs come from both the popular and the ancient Gaelic sean nos traditions. Susan McKeown has recorded ten albums of original and world music and built an impressive career through her many releases, extensive touring and performances on programs such as A Prairie Home Companion, All Things Considered, Mountain Stage and for PBS, Sessions at West 54th and American Masters. Her World Village album Sweet Liberty was nominated for a BBC Folk Music Award. Lorin Sklamberg has been the lead singer of the Jewish American roots band the Klezmatics since its founding in 1986.

I am repurchasing this album because I lost the music when I changed computers and I have been missing these songs. They are beautiful and complex. They mix two cultures and weave the musical DNA together in amazing ways. I had the good fortune to be able to see the artists perform this album live in Washington and I would jump at the chance to see them again. It was worth buying this album once, and again!

The themes of these songs are often dark but that isn't unexpected for Celtic nor Yiddish culture. Absolutely magical album!

This is an absolutely wonderful and beautiful CD. Both musicians are superb, their voices are beautiful and expressive and the instrumental accompaniment is effective but not intrusive. It's marvelous how they weave together Yiddish and Irish songs without getting precious or contrived. I listen to it often.

This is a wonderful and delicious blend of Celtic and Yiddish and amazingly enough, it works. I've listened to it endlessly - sent it to friends and shared it with family to universal appreciation. Of course, you have to like "folk" music in the first place, but if that's your joy, this will add to it. No need to understand Yiddish or other languages - it "speaks" for itself.
