Seman Violins (4447 Oakton, Skokie)
$15 at the door for a concert, followed by a session of tunes
From his days with the Laketown Buskers in the ’80s, through his years behind the mic of Radio Gumbo in the ’90s, to his current weekly appearances leading the Bagels and Bluegrass jam at Kaufman’s deli, Stuart Rosenberg has been a fixture on the Chicago folk scene. Stuart’s talents range from blues and swing to bluegrass and Klezmer. You can hear a sample at his MySpace page. Make sure you work on the two tunes posted below, and come to Fiddle Club next weekend when Stuart will hold forth with great stories and inspired tunes. As always, we’ll form the chairs into a circle and play some tunes together.
Fiselekh Fiselekh, a Klezmer (aka Jewish) dance tune
