ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CD Reviews...

\"The music on this CD is simply the best antidote for holiday insanity. I\'ve even listened to its soothing melodies in the middle of July! It is truly remarkable how much talent is evident here, and the recording is as polished as it is caringly mastered. Every track is equally enjoyable - so much so that I have purchased a number of these for Christmas presents.... I can only hope that this will be Bob\'s first of a multitude of musical gifts to the world\" - Moki Kokoris, North Salem, NY

\"If you really want to feel the magic of Christmas, this CD is a must! Bob Sirois\'s \"A Hometown Christmas\" is one of the most beautifully arranged \"easy listner\" pieces I have in my massive holiday collection. You can feel his love for the music in every song. It relaxingly puts you in the festive mood, and makes you feel there is not a care in the world. You just drift away with the familiar music and feel the spirit. Don\'t miss out on this one, better yet, share it with your loved ones\" - Cathy Bergmann, Clinton IA.

\"Bob Sirois\' \"A Hometown Christmas\" is a beautifully arranged Folk style, Instrumental Christmas record. His renditions of these wonderful Christmas classics convey a peaceful, warm and sometimes nostalgic feeling of Christmas old and new. It was easy to immediately fall in love with every song on this record. I also like the fact that he included a female vocalist on two tracks(Oh Holy Night & What Child Is This). She has a truly wonderful voice which adds variety to this already amazing CD. And for all you John Denver fans, Bob did a great Instrumental rendition of \"Aspenglow\" and \"Christmas For Cowboys\". I recognize these songs from the late John Denver\'s \"Rocky Mountain Christmas\" record as I own this album as well. I won\'t hesitate to say that I would highy recommend \"A Hometown Christmas\" to anyone, anywhere, at any time. It\'s a phenomenal album which is destined to become a Christmas classic\" - Sara A


About the Artist...

Bob Sirois began his musical journey when he started playing guitar at age 16. For the better part of his 25 years in music he has diligently sought instruction from several different teachers who have helped to shape him as a professional musician.

Bob spent his early years as a Rock & Roll guitar player honing his skills with the Connecticut band “Under The Rose”.

During this time he had occasion to perform hundreds of shows both with his band UTR and as a session player for various other artists. But it was essentially the inspiration of Folk/Western legend John Denver that caused him to redirect his efforts toward becoming an acoustic style Folk Guitarist/Composer.

Since 1996 when he began listening to John’s music, Bob dedicated himself to becoming a highly trained Folk/New Age style Guitarist. As a result of his many efforts he helped to compose, arrange and produce 3 albums (“Under The Rose”, “Drain”, & “A Little Hope”) with his band “Under The Rose”. Their consistent efforts through the years helped position Bob and the band to sign a recording deal with Attack Records and a publishing deal with Cherry Lane Music in 2002.

This opportunity helped pave the way for Bob to perform, arrange, orchestrate and produce three solo, instrumental Christmas albums titled “A Hometown Christmas”(2002), “Dreams of Christmas”(2005) and \"A Christmas Melody\" (2008). In 2006, Bob also produced a full length Christmas DVD titled \"Dreams of Christmas\" containing many of the tracks from his first two Christmas albums. In addition, Bob has also become a well-versed guitar instructor as well as a session player for the popular country artist Cheryl Cormier.

Today, Bob spends a majority of his time doing what he has come to love the most, composing, arranging, orchestrating and teaching.

I really liked the music, especially when I was cooking our Christmas dinner, with a glass of wine, and Bob's Hometown Christmas on the background!
