Hanukkah Tribute To Woody Guthrie
This holiday season we are so excited to release this pairing of songs written by the great Okie troubadour, Woody Guthrie. Woody moved to Coney Island in 1942 and spent much of his time learning from and collaborating with his Jewish mother in law and yiddish poet Aliza Greenblatt. He identified with the stories and hardships of the Jewish people inspiring him to write these unique and powerful poems and songs. Though these works and Jewish writings were little known at the time, their rediscovery by his daughter Nora Guthrie paints a fuller picture of Woody as a writer, social activist, and humanitarian.
