Angel Band: The Christmas Sessions  (MA’M Recordings)
by  Andrew Greer

FOR FANS OF: The Civil Wars, Derek Webb, Gungor
Rating: 4 Stars

Armed with three new and eight traditional tunes, troubadour Andrew Greer puts a folksy/acoustic spin on the season with a stable of skillfully-paired guest-stars. His richly passionate vocals are just as capable of volleying with the tender Sandi Patty (“Ave Maria”) or the earthy Cindy Morgan (“A Cradle In Bethlehem”) as they are hitting a soulful stride next to The McCrary Sisters (“The Little Drummer Boy”), all while individually earning titles of master interpreter and emotive originator.
