Sasson in New York City, Chanuka 2010


We are very excited to be finalizing the details of our NYC tour for Chanuka, 2010. We will be playing a number of concerts and events around the city from dec 1-8.

-One of the special projects for this tour is a collaboration with Fiddlemonster Productions and some members of Bread and Puppet to present: The Master of Prayer; a puppet show. This story by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov has many connections to the Chanuka story, and we look forward to presenting it in a fun, entertaining, and educational format. Sasson will be providing live musical accompaniment for the production. see master of prayer blog

- We are also looking forward to playing the Klezmer Brunch on sun, dec 5th at the City Winery.

A full list of events and shows will be posted here soon, so stay tuned.
