Listen to the Music!
This week Lisa Redfern brings us the gift of a little early holiday cheer, albeit wrapped in a slightly unconventional package, with Child of Hope. Based on the popular Christmas hymn with words by John Morison set to the music of Handel, Lisa’s rendition is decidedly twangier, but still retains the original’s sentiment of praise and thanks for the teachings of Christ Jesus. This song is from Lisa’s holiday album All Is Bright, an inspired and uplifting acoustic work featuring 14 sacred songs that resonate the humanity, joy and hope of the first Christmas. Lisa’s unique arrangements reflect a diversity of Americana styles, encompassing bluegrass, country, folk, swing and gospel. Her soul-filled singing creates an intimacy that puts her right there in the room with you.
