Of course as soon as I post about Christmas music from local bands, I always find out about more after the fact. So what the hell, here’s a bunch more holiday music from your favorite local musicians.
Meade Skelton’s latest EP “Christmas Joy” is a nice collection of holiday tunes from Richmond’s favorite country gentleman. Meade will be playing a Carytown Christmas Sing-Along on Christmas Eve in front of the Byrd Theatre from 5-7 p.m.
“Happy Exmas” is an original Christmas song written & performed by Jesse Hall, Andrew Leahey and Phil Heesen.
Americana duo Sleepy Brother has recorded a Christmas tune called “Joy is Here.”
Want to know what happens when members of Positive No, the Snowy Owls, Hoax Hunters, Clair Morgan and Canary Oh Canary quickly get together to write a Christmas song? Here you go. Listen to “Noel, Noel” (also known as the RVA Fuzz Holiday Song) and find out. All proceeds from track sales will be donated to the Central Virginia Food Bank.
And of course it’s not Christmas with Kurtis Blow’s “Christmas Rappin'” so here’s Butcher Brown offering their take on it.
