Why Gefiltetrout? It started with the contra dance band, Dancing Trout. Looking for something more melodically and harmonically interesting than American Old Time fiddle tunes, Carla started writing her own tunes with an Eastern European feel. The group re-formed around Klezmer music and morphed the name to match.
Klezmer and Eastern European dance music and songs, influenced by jazz and Middle Eastern rhythms. Mostly we play for fun, but are available for concerts, parties, weddings, and coffee house gigs
