Christmas Songs on the Lam and Other Songs for the Season

St. Paul Minnesota’s Red House Records works up their first ever Christmas album with Christmas Songs on the Lam and Other Songs for the Season.  Featuring a dozen cuts from their artists, it’s a fun and interesting new holiday album that music fans of several genres will enjoy.

First off, a bit about Red House Records. The artists signed to this label are quite diverse and range from blues legends, rock legends, honky tonk country to straight up bluegrass. David Bromberg, Jorma Kaukonen, Hot Tuna, Michael Johnson, The Wailin’ Jennys, Dale Watson and John Gorka are just a few of the artists signed to Red House. Mighty fine collection.

As for Christmas Songs On The Lam, I’ll let the folks at Red House describe the record: “We at Red House Records, based in the nation’s icebox of Minnesota, have a lot of experience with below-zero temperatures and dark, snowy nights. Oddly enough, we’ve never put out a record to mark the holiday season. Until now. We saw the light (no pun intended) and thought why can’t a holiday compilation be a great record too? Like the season itself, it’s an eclectic mix of lust, lament, and gratitude.”

While this compilation may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I loved it and will feature four songs from it tonight.
