Woody Guthrie's Happy Joyous Hanukkah Show

by Melissa

Tonic is very excited to announce the first of several concerts we will be presenting at the beautiful landmark theatre at The Abrons Arts Center on Grand Street.

The Klezmatics have forever transcended genres: blending klezmer with aching shtetl melodies, raucous Latin stomps, wild jazz riffs and provocative Arabic, African, American and Balkan rhythms. The Klezmatics 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.


Tonic presents The Klezmatics at the Abrons Arts Center: Woody Guthrie's Happy Joyous Hanukkah Show, Monday December 2nd, 7:30pm $20, The Abrons Arts Center, 466 Grand St at Pitt (a few minutes from Tonic). For tickets: www.theatermania.com, www.henrystreet.org/arts, 212.352.3101
