More Holiday Music from The Infamous Stringdusters: ‘The Hanukkah Singles’
As candles were lit around the world last night ushering in the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, there were two brandnew recordings of classic Festival of Lights songs as performed by The Infamous Stringdusters. They had just released Dust the Halls: An Acoustic Christmas Holiday last week, and this new issue of The Hanukkah Singles is on Americana Vibes, in partnership with Regime Music Group.
The Stringdusters chose two standards: “Maoz Tzur (Rock of Ages)” and “Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah.” COVID-19 being what it is, these singles and the Christmas album were recorded remotely, but all of the warmth of the songs remains intact.
Andy Hall (dobro) noted in the band’s press release:
“It was a new, wonderful experience recording ‘Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah’ and ‘Maoz Tzur’ and adding them to our holiday collection. Truly an honor to learn a couple Hanukkah classics for you!”
