About Beyond the Pale:

Returning to Ashkenaz for the first time since 2008, Toronto’s Beyond the Pale has been making its distinctive brand of boundary-busting Eurofolk fusion for nearly 15 years. Mixing Klezmer, Balkan and Romanian styles with an eclectic range of North American influences, the group’s unique brand of acoustic music is delivered with virtuosic musicianship, exciting dynamics and an inventive approach to both original and traditional material. Three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners, the group has toured extensively across North America, Europe and Australia, collaborated with the likes of Theodore Bikel, Socalled, Flory Jagoda and various Canadian symphonic and choral groups, and has released three acclaimed CD recordings. Beyond the Pale features some of Toronto’s leading world/roots musicians, including Eric Stein (mandolin), Martin van de Ven (clarinet), Aleksandar Gajic (violin), Milos Popovic (accordion) and Bret Higgins (bass).
