MatisyahuMatisyahu will end his eighth annual Festival of Light tour with four intimate “unplugged” concerts beginning with his performance on December 26 at SOPAC.

Three years ago the formerly Hassidic artist shaved his beard, two years ago he began taking his Festival of Light tour beyond the confines of New York, and this year Matisyahu adds four “unplugged” dates just after Hanukkah at intimate venues along the east coast.

Joined by his long-time friend and guitarist Aaron Dugan, Matisyahu plays material which spans his ten year career as an American alternative rock musician known for blending Orthodox Jewish themes with reggae, rock and hip hop beatboxing sounds.
