Pair of concerts scheduled in Surry

SURRY — Two upcoming concerts are scheduled at Surry Arts and Events at the Barn.

The Casco Bay Tummlers will be performing on Friday, Aug. 26, at 7 p.m. The group, based in Portland, Maine, has been performing klezmer music since 1988. They have released three recordings and were featured performers on the LL Bean holiday CD. They also have a dramatic side, creating and performing the music for the world premiere of “Manifest” at the Portland Stage Company.

The Tummlers have a unique sound and a stage performance that features all members of the band. The band’s repertoire is versatile, ranging from original music to traditional dances and songs of the Yiddish theater and Jewish ghetto — all with original arrangements.

On Sunday, Aug. 28, at 4 p.m., pianist Sasha Beresovsky will be performing.

He is a graduate of Indiana University, studying most recently with the late Edmund Battersby. He regularly appears at The Lyceum in Old Town Alexandria as part of the Summer Chamber Series of WMPA.

Tickets for both concerts are $15. For more information, visit
