Woody Guthrie - Hanukkah Dance
Share
clear

Channukah, the Festival of Lights, in one (actually more than one) of the great Apocryphal books of the Bible that tells the story of a fight for freedom, was celebrated by the late great Woody Guthrie who must have composed this marvelous Channukah song which he sings with all the power and pathos of someone who survived the Dust Bowl. Alan Lomax discovered Woody and Bob Dylan then discovered his music. I await the day that, in homage to Woody, Dylan rerecords and performs this song.
