This Christmas, Manitoba harpist/vocalist Janelle Nadeau will release a new album called Star of Night and perform a series of concerts from Dec. 6-10, 2017.
Listeners can expect rare instrument combinations and chord changes that breathe new life into classic songs such as “Do You Hear What I Hear”, “Silent Night” and “O Come All Ye Faithful”. With a few surprises including a twist on Irish rock band, U2’s single “Peace on Earth”, this album is sure to be a favorite for the holiday season.
“Whether you are driving in your car, cozying up on the couch or having a Christmas gathering, this album will be perfect to engage in the spirit of the holiday with a fresh sound,” explains Nadeau.
With the Janelle Nadeau Ensemble, audience members will enjoy the sounds of Nadeau on pedal harp and vocals, as well as two of Nadeau’s colleagues world renowned harpist Kim Robertson on Celtic Harp/vocals, who has just released a new album called Christmas Lullaby Vol II, a collection of traditional carols from around the world and Joaquin Ayala performing a special collection of rare instruments dating back to the 9th century.
