Jeremiah Lockwood: A Great Miracle


Revisiting a Hanukkah tribute inspired by John Fahey's The New Possibility.

A Great Miracle: Jeremiah Lockwood’s Guitar Soli Chanukah Record features eight solo guitar performances (one for each night of Hanukkah) that celebrate the dancing candlelight with blues-inspired takes on the most beloved melodies of the holiday’s canon. Ahead of his performance this Sunday at the the SFJazz Center (and the start of Hanukkah next Sunday), we'll revisit last year's interview with Jeremiah on the album's release this Saturday, December 10, 8-10 pm.
