Christmas Treasures, Features World-Class Guitarists



Autumn Records brings together eight of today’s top guitarists on the new Christmas album, Christmas Treasures, A McPherson® Guitars Instrumental Collection, releasing October 18, 2006. The world-class guitarists featured on this collection of instrumental Christmas classics include Grammy nominee and Dove Award winner Phil Keaggy, Mark Baldwin (Whitney Houston, Kirk Franklin, Amy Grant), Dave Cleveland (Little Big Town, Steven Curtis Chapman, Sara Groves, Rebecca St. James), Bruce Gaitsch (Michael W. Smith, Madonna, Peter Cetera), Tom Hemby (BeBe Winans, Faith Hill, Brian McKnight), Michael Hodge (Sawyer Brown, 4Him, Lakewood Church), Matt McPherson (founder and designer of McPherson® Guitars) and Michael Ripoll (Nick Lachey, Patti LaBelle, Kirk Whalum, Avalon).
Christmas Treasures takes a new look at some of world’s most beloved Christmas carols, each performed on an acclaimed McPherson® acoustic guitar. The legendary guitarists offer up fresh interpretations of songs such as “Away in a Manger,” “Coventry Carol,” “Deck the Halls,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “Silent Night” and “We Three Kings.” The remarkable sonic beauty of the McPherson® guitars is faithfully captured with the finest vintage and modern microphones, and the stellar production adds piano, Irish whistle, harmonica, drums, bass, electric guitars, percussion, organ and live strings.
“Our goal was to create a Christmas album that would lighten hearts and lift spirits, and the guitarists featured on this album definitely know how to make uplifting music,” says Don Boyer, president of Autumn Records. “McPherson® guitars have an amazing sound, and they record beautifully, especially in the hands of these world-class guitarists.”
With a revolutionary sound hole technology and unique cantilevered neck design, the McPherson® guitar is the guitar of choice for many professional musicians on the scene today. CMA Award winner and Grammy Award nominated country sensation Brad Paisley refers to the McPherson® guitar as a “work of art.” Other recording artists and studio musicians who have embraced McPherson® Guitars include Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Steven Curtis Chapman, Carrie Underwood, Peter Cetera, Caedmon’s Call, Richard Marx, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Kenny Loggins, Delirious? and MercyMe.
