Happy, Joyous Hanukkah
“Skips merrily out of the speakers and becomes the life of the party.”
—Chicago Sun Times
Woody Guthrie and Hanukkah? Who knew? Almost nobody. But in 1998 his daughter Nora discovered a trove of songs that the celebrated folksinger wrote in the 1940s. The Grammy-winning Klezmatics riff off Guthrie’s original melodies and create new tunes in this unremittingly cheerful fusion of Klezmer music and American sounds.
The program will last approximately 2 hours including intermission.
