Bozeman, Montana-based duo Storyhill celebrates the release of its first-ever Christmas album “Bethlehem” with a performance at Sacred Heart Music Center in Duluth.
In three decades of writing and performing together, Chris Cunningham and John Hermanson have never recorded a holiday album. Set for release Nov. 27, “Bethlehem” embraces the full depth and meaning of the Advent and Christmas season. This album leans into the message of hope for a more peaceful world.
“We wanted to make a record that added something new to the conversation about the Christmas story, a vision that flips the narrative of this world and makes the first last, the last first and lifts up the lowly among us,” John says.” We wanted to explore the story of a poor refugee, born in a manger, because none would take him in.”
These themes became increasingly relevant as Storyhill touring came to an abrupt halt in March 2020 with the onset of the pandemic.
The sound and feel of “Bethlehem” is centered solidly around acoustic guitars and intently focused harmonies. The album will appeal to fans of Storyhill, and hopefully become a go to Christmas folk classic, providing an oasis of peace and calm and bringing some light into times when we need it most
