The Sway Machinery, Luther Dickinson, Steve Berlin, Ethan Miller, Members of Antibalas and More Confirmed for Twas The Night Before Hanukkah
The Idelsohn Society For Musical Preservation will host Twas The Night Before Hanukkah: The Musical Battle Between Christmas and The Festival Of Lights, at San Francisco, CA’s Bricks and Mortar Music Hall on December 15. The show is timed with the release of The Idelsohn Society’s album of the same name, which includes Hanukkah songs as well as Christmas music sung (and in many cases written) by Jews, furthers its mission to educate, edify and promote Jewish musical history.” Last year, the Idelsohn Society arranged for a month-long event in San Francisco’s Mission District with the first-ever Jewish pop-up store Tikva Records in support of Songs For The Jewish-American Jet Set. The store was part performance space, part gallery, and served as a mecca for Jewish vinyl collectors in celebration of the independent record label, Tikva Records.
Artists confirmed to perform at the Bricks and Mortar Music Hall include: Sway Machinery Featuring Jeremiah Lockwood, Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars, Black Crowes), Thao, Rebecca Bortman, Ethan Miller (Howlin’ Rain, Comets on Fire), Lyn Burton (of the Burton Sisters), Zach Rogue, Ceci Bastida, Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and members of Antibalas. The musicians will draw from their individual catalogs as well as a range of holiday classics.
