O Star O'er Bethlehem
This morning on the way to work I was listening to WRVU, and a group of local artists were doing an interview to promote a Christmas CD that they had recorded. The final song was an in-studio performance by Erika Chambers, doing an original song she had written. It was so good you almost couldn't believe people hadn't been singing it for years. She has the song up on her myspace profile, and it's even better with a full arrangement featuring mandolin and violin.
Erika Chambers - "O Star O'er Bethlehem" (mp3)
She will be performing this Friday night (December 8) at the Radio Cafe in East Nashville, along with several of the other performers featured on the Holiday Noise CD. You can listen to a couple of the other songs from the CD on the album's myspace page.
