Yiddish Summer Weimer

The largest Yiddish festival in Germany is taking place now, July 9, through August 9, 2007.
The festival, in operation since the year 2000, invited musicians to teach Klezmer in several

year;s Yiddish Summer Weimar is “Tradition an new Impulses”. For that reason, many
well-known artists from Germany, Argentina, USA, the Netherlands etc. will

Woody Guthrie’s Happy Joyous Hanuka

Announcing the new Klezmatics cd – just in time for your holiday pleasure!

The Klezmatics: Woody Guthrie’s Happy Joyous Hanuka (Klezmatics Records, 2004)

In 1942, Woody Guthrie moved to Brooklyn and soon, through his mother-in-law, the renowned Yiddish poet Aliza Greenblat, he became involved with the Coney Island Jewish community. He wrote songs about Hanuka, about Jewish history and spiritual life and about World War II and the antifascist cause. After his death in 1967, these songs sat forgotten in archives. Lost for almost thirty years, Guthrie’s Jewish 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 Hanuka” is the first recorded release of this amazing material.…
