“A complete joy…Guthrie’s lyrics are transformed from dust gatherers to living, breathing, vital pieces of music…Woody’s Jewish In-Laws would certainly have been proud.”–All Music Guide. Woody Guthrie, father of American folk music, writer of “This Land Is Your Land,” also wrote Hanukkah songs! Lost for almost 30 years, Guthrie’s Hanukkah lyrics were discovered in 1998 by Woody’s daughter, Nora Guthrie. She was so inspired by what she found, she asked the Grammy-winning Klezmatics to write new music for the lyrics. The Klezmatics have reached millions through performances and features on such programs as Late Night with David Letterman, A Prairie Home Companion, and Sex and the City.
