Beyond The Pale

Beyond The Pale

“A bracingly modern, mind-blowing flight into a very new Jewish-Balkan sonic atmosphere”

— LA Weekly, Los Angeles, CA

Beyond the Pale is one of Canada’s most innovative and exciting acoustic roots ensembles. Klezmer and balkan styles serve as the point of departure for their genre-defying sound, which is then shaped by everything from jazz and classical music to bluegrass and reggae. With stellar musicianship, unique songcraft and exuberant energy, Beyond the Pale’s music can range from a raucous roar to the most intimate “chamber-folk.” Celebrating their 20th  anniversary in 2018, Beyond the Pale are seven-time nominees and three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners, and have toured extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, Australia and Brazil.








“A rich musical experience which can touch your soul … Born of tradition but living in the
here and now.”

— Canadian Musician Magazine


“Post-modern klezmer, in all the best senses.”

— Ari Davidow,
