1. Tell us about your work and interests.

I have a lifelong interest in the music of the Balkans, and in the preservation and dissemination of recordings from the 78 rpm era.

 2. What’s your favorite new project right now?

I have started a comparative study of accordion styles in Romania, Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Greece, and will be launching a blog “Lauren Brody’s Accordion Bytes” soon.

3. What kinds of classes will you teach at A Biselle KlezKamp and winter KlezKamp?

I teach in the music performance workshops, especially the skills required to accompany dancing.

4. What do you do when you’re not teaching at KlezKamp?

I am a piano tuner-technician, researcher, and accordionist-singer.  I play in many contexts, and I am currently playing accordion in the Folksbiene production of “Di Megile.”
