Re: Meaning of "Klezmer"

I was under the impression it meant literally "a vessel of music" and was 
appropriated to mean musicians, then not very good musicians.  

In Mickey Katz' interview with Yale Strom, the implication (on MK's part)  of 
a "klezmer" is that a klezmer is a rustic, untrained folk musician.
