The East Coast klezmer band will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, at the Havurah Synagogue, 185 N. Mountain Ave., Ashland.

Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased at Music Coop, 268 E. Main St., or at brownpapertickets.com. Tickets will be $30 at the door. Call 541-488-7716 for information.
