About Shir
Shir is the complete Jewish music group:
Klezmer, Israeli, Yiddish, Sephardi, Mizrachi, Ladino and Simcha music.

Formed in 1997 by Maurice Chernick, the group has become a major force on the UK Jewish music scene performing concerts and fulfilling the original function of the Klezmorim – entertaining at Simchas - Jewish parties.

Coming from different musical backgrounds (classical, jazz and gypsy folk), the five musicians of SHIR meet to provide a spontaneous, energetic and soulful musical experience.

Shir attempts to be as true as possible to the original sound of the Klezmorim using acoustic instruments and drawing on the original Klezmer, Traditional, Yiddish and Sephardi repertoire,
while at the same time catering for more “up to date” tastes in Jewish music with popular Israeli folk and dance tunes.
