Short Description: Happy Joyous Hanukkah

The Klezmatics
Woody Guthrie’s Happy Joyous Hanukkah Tour
With Special Guests Susan McKeown & Boo Reiners*

(Please confirm billing with advancement, to insure that McKeown and/or Reiners are performing.)


The Klezmatics have forever transcended genres: blending klezmer with aching shtetl melodies, raucous Latin stomps, wild jazz riffs and provocative Arabic, African, American and Balkan rhythms. The Klezmatics will be presenting a contagious celebration of Hanukkah, marrying their soulful and ebullient Jewish roots to Woody Guthrie’s poignantly mesmerizing and newly discovered lyrics. This program highlights their two most recent CD releases: the multi-cultural folk sounds of “Wonder Wheel” and the ecstatically danceable, hoe-down worthy “Woody Guthrie’s Happy Joyous Hanukkah.“ Special guests include acclaimed Celtic singer Susan McKeown and multi-instrumentalist Boo Reiners.
