Geez, I've been in the south so long I've forgotten there's more to the world than white bread and country music.  You can't find a good bagel to save your life and the nearest synogog (?) is 70 miles away.

Diversity is not the strong point of the rural south. 



No offense to anyone intended.  8)

klezmer actually has a lot in common with bluegrass, since they're both folk musics of rural folks from mountainous areas. in fact, my teacher started a band that combines both, and it's really striking how a lot of the melodies are very similar, to the point it's not always easy to tell which is Russian and which is Appalachian.  http://www.klezmermountainboys.com

and don't worry, i know new york bred jewish musicians who don't know what klezmer is...
