Shabos Zmiros – The Klezmatics sing words by Woody Guthrie

It’s time once again for my not-quite-weekly song of the week.
This week, klezmer superstars (the only in existence) The Klezmatics sing “Holy Ground” from their 2006 Grammy Award-winning album, “Wonder Wheel.” All of the lyrics on the album are previously unrecorded lyrics written by Woodie Guthrie inspired by his experiences with Jews and Jewish culture. In this video, they’re singing with a Yiddish choir from Boston. It’s pretty bangin’.

Shabat Shalom, jblogosphites.
