Lawrence musicians collaborate on free Christmas album

Free Christmas music from Lawrence artist Sam Billen is a bit of a tradition — and his new album released today, You Can Always Give, is another great compilation of tunes featuring local artists Kawehi, Suzannah Johannes, and others.

On his blog, Billen explains he aimed to pair up musicians who hadn't necessarily worked together before. "The challenge was to collaborate on a song together and to make a new friend," he writes.

Sam Billen's latest Christmas album, "You Can Always Give," features a variety of Lawrence musicians. Cover art via sambillen.bandcamp.com.

This is a great idea. You should also have them on u-tube, with each musician's names, and it is from Lawrence!

Thanks!

By the way, take a look at my latest blog, Nelson Mandela - A Musical Tribute

It would be great if some of you did one or more songs for Mandela. They could go on the blog and also be streamlined on the web!

There are people in Africa who see the web and this music, as well as in this country.
