The latest speaker in our ongoing Very Short Introductions event series with the 92nd Street Y in New York, May 15, is Mark Slobin, the author of Folk Music: A Very Short Introduction. Slobin is an expert in folk music from all across the globe, especially traditional Jewish and klezmer music (such as that of the Klezmatics, above). 92Y fans should also keep an eye out later this summer for Elijah Wald, who’ll be giving a talk about the blues.
