New York museum to show Klezmer parsnip video

Strange but true - the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York is to show a short video of me playing Hava Nagila on a parsnip at KlezFest in London in 2009.

This video will be shown as part of an exhibition of "modern" versions of the well-known Jewish tune.

Thanks again to Amy Sampson for playing along with me, and to Paul Tkachenko for showing us how to customise the vegetables!

Check the Museum of Jewish Heritage website in the coming weeks for details.
