Finjan - 30th Anniversary Reunion Canada’s first and original Klezmer group Finjan is about to start celebrating their 31st year making music. The three times Juno Award nominated band and Western Canadian Music Award winners are performing in their hometown of Winnipeg for Mameloshen this June. Since breaking onto the scene in 1982, Finjan has appeared in movies, documentaries and has toured all over North America and in Europe. Their five albums have received critical acclaim and are highly sought after. What makes this upcoming Winnipeg concert extra special is that Finjan has been on hiatus for the last few years and is excited to perform back in Winnipeg. Featuring Myron Schultz (clarinet), Victor Schultz (violin), Shayla Fink (accordion, voice), Kinzey Posen (bass, voice) and Daniel Koulack (guitar, mandolin, banjo).
