Tonight’s the last night of Hanukkah, the Jewish holiday celebrating the re-dedication of the Second Holy Temple in Jerusalem after the Maccabean revolt. I always felt that Christmas songs were generally better that the songs associated with Hanukkah. However there is one song from my childhood that always reminds me of the holiday: The Dreidel Song.
In honor of the holiday I made a video of me performing the Dreidel Song, New Orleans style on the Chapman Stick Guitar. This video is dedicated to my beloved Annie.
