ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
‘Anticipating Christmas’ is genuine and warm like a favourite winter sweater. Holiday melodies we know and love, sentimental favourites re-visited, thoughtful lyrics and evocative new compositions are all featured here.

Performed by Canadian musician Richard Knechtel, this Holiday collection will set the perfect mood for nights by the fire, entertaining friends, wrapping gifts, and celebrating all the good things during the festive time of year.

Richard’s distinctive mellow voice is supported by his dynamic rhythm guitar style interspersed with virtuoso harmonica playing.

Performing professionally since 1970, Richard plays 150 – 200 dates a year. He has now released 18 full-length albums on his Greentree Music label and is a prolific songwriter with more than 450 original songs to his credit.

'Anticipating Christmas’ is a welcome addition for fans of this talented musician and the ideal musical compliment for the Holiday Season.
