Yiddish: The Future for a Culture with a Past with Henry Sapoznik
Henry Sapoznik is a five-time Grammy nominated record and radio producer, banjoist, author, and ethnomusicologist in the fields of Yiddish, American popular and traditional music.
A child of Polish Holocaust survivors and the product of an Orthodox yeshiva education, Sapoznik pioneered the revival of klezmer music and, in 1985 founded KlezKamp, the first program designed to teach traditional Yiddish folk arts.
Sapoznik has produced/recorded 43 recordings and his release of “The Lambert Yiddish Cylinders 1901-1905” won the 2017 Certificate of Merit from the prestigious Association of Recorded Sounds Collections.
He received the 2002 Peabody award for his 13-part NPR series “The Yiddish Radio Project,” whose collection of over 5,000 broadcasts is in the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress.
Sapoznik was nominated for an Emmy award for his music to the 2000 film “The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg.”
