Klezmer music was brought to this country by immigrant Jews from eastern Europe. It has been revived, and there are a few bands around that specialize in this style of music.  The main instruments include clarinet, accordion and violin.  The photo is by a New York based photographer, William Myers, who is best known for his black and white  images of New York City life styles.
