Many people wonder about the origin of the Dreidle Song. Many assume it’s an old Jewish folk tune, passed down from shtetls in the old country. However, the music was in fact composed and first recorded in 1926. Its creator, Samuel E. Goldfarb, was a pioneering Jewish songwriter and music educator who lived from 1891 to 1978. His son, Myron Gordon (now 95 years old) reached out to Craig for a commission request to record his father’s music to honor for posterity. Therefore, Craig is excited to announce the upcoming release of this brand new album dedicated to Samuel E. Golfarb! For a sneak preview of the music, click here!
For the past 2 years, I’ve been collecting and recording songs for my own CD. It’s called “Here and There,” and the plan is to get it out just in time for… January, or February or…well you get the picture. However, as an incentive to get me into the studio to finish, if you pre-order now, we’ll send you 2 copies of the CD and list your name as a executive producer in the printed copy of the CD jacket! How awesome is that? Download a free song from the album and pre-order here.
