Released:
Label: Jewish Music Group
Yes, you read that right -- Woody Guthrie's happy joyous Hanukkah. Guthrie wasn't Jewish, but his mother-in-law, Yiddish poet Aliza Greenblatt, was. Guthrie and Greenblatt shared a professional as well as a family relationship, critiquing each other's work and participating in social-justice movements together. Over the years, Guthrie penned a handful of Jewish-themed songs for community events, and the Klezmatics (at the behest of his daughter Nora) have picked them up and transformed them into a rollicking, lighthearted album.
