The Klezmatics Present: Happy Joyous Hanukah

  • Landmark on Main Street 232 Main Street Port Washington, NY, 11050 United States (map)

Woody Guthrie, father of American folk music, writer of "This Land Is Your Land," also wrote Hanukah songs!

After his death in 1967, these songs sat forgotten in archives. "Lost" for almost 30 years, Guthrie's Hanukah lyrics were discovered in 1998 by Woody's daughter, Nora Guthrie. She was so inspired by what she found, she asked the Klezmatics to write new music for the lyrics.

Woody Guthrie's Happy Joyous Hanukah is the second recorded release of this amazing material. Deftly intermingling Klezmer with American folk and bluegrass,Woody Guthrie's Happy Joyous Hanukah is destined to become a holiday classic for generations to come.
