WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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. Now, The Klezmatics present a contagious celebration of Hanukkah, marrying their soulful and ebullient Jewish roots to Woody Guthrie's poignantly mesmerizing and newly discovered lyrics. The program highlights The Klezmatics' two most recent CD releases: the multicultural 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.
