Welcome


Welcome to the music and musical instrument gallery of
JOELLEN LAPIDUS AND THE URBAN GYPSIES.

Listen to music from traditions as different as the Southern Appalachian Mountains, Eastern Europe and sunny Southern California.   Mountain dulcimer, accordion, guitar, dumbeck, violin, viola, upright bass, spoons: it's all here. 

Hear us live at Boulevard Music in Culver City on Sat., May 12th at 8PM.  See the Calendar for details and how to make a reservation.

Take a look at Inlaid and carved dulcimers of unusual shapes and themes from the Big Sur coast of California to the pelican and whale inhabited beaches of Los Angeles.  This is my world and the inspiration for my creations.
