Klezmatics Tribute to Woody Guthrie
at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue


The Klezmatics are world-reknowned superstars of the klezmer world. They erupted out of New York City’s East Village in 1986 and revitalized klezmer for the new century. Their klezmer is one steeped in Jewish spiritualism and Eastern European tradition while incorporating more provocative themes such as social rights and anti-fundamentalism with eclectic musical influences such as gospel, punk, African and Balkan rhythms. they have released six albums of wild, spiritual, provocative, reflective, and ecstatically danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels. The Klezmatics have garnered numerous awards and accolades throughout their career, including a GLAMA (Gay and Lesbian American Music Award), The German Critics Award (twice), and have topped the Billboard world music charts on numerous occasions

For this performance, they 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.
