Christmastide - Bob Bennett
"Thoughtfully pursuing Christmas with his delicate acoustic refrains, Bob Bennett combines his lilting vocal and humble insights to create a holiday music delight.
"Whether musing on the Christ Child’s real birthday on “It May Have not Been December” or citing his 'bah-humbug!' jeers on “Christmas for Cynics,” the folk singer/songwriter perfectly captures all the quirks of Westerners’ love/hate relationship with the holidays. “Classic” Christmas recordings make light of the season’s chaos while ever so poignantly reminding us why we bother to celebrate. Achieving both, the timeless effects of Christmastide should become classic in no time.”

Here’s a Christmas present for you – exquisitely crafted advent music from Bob Bennett. I got to go in the studio sing a bit on this one, but mostly I just listened and let the goosebumps rise.
