Kristian Rusbjerg is one of Scandinavians best Accordion players. He plays these Christmas songs with such intensity and feeling, that he makes them sound brand new, especially with the extraordinary backing by some of Nashville’s finest musicians. Enjoy the new and the old Christmas songs on “Accordion Christmas” in front of the fireplace with a good glass of wine, in your car or next to the newly decorated Christmas tree.

    Dansk Accordion Jul i Nashville

    Harmonikavirtuosen Kristian Rusbjerg har været i Nashville sammen med sangskriveren og sangeren Peter Vesth. Og det er der kommet en (næsten) instrumental CD ud med 17 skønne julemelodier. Paul Scholten og hans musikere i Nashville - ikke mindst violinisten Glen Duncan - skinner på dette album - men det er Kristian Rusbjerg, der er stjernen i denne stribe julefavoritter. Elegant har co-producer Peter Vesth og Rusbjerg flettet amerikanske juleklassikere som Winter Wonderland, Sleigh Ride, Let it snow, Santa Claus is coming to town m.fl. sammen med Peter Vesths ny-juleklassikere Candlelights and winternights, Snow’d in, Bethlehem, Home again m.fl. Og som grande finale og med de eneste vokalindsatser på CDen bryder først Jess Leary ud i Quiet Christmas Night og derefter Melanie Safka (hende med bl.a. Candles in the Rain) ud i sin smukke julehymne Will Peace come in time for Christmas. Den, der ikke kommer i julestemning af Kristian Rusbjergs dejlige akkordion CD, må være lavet af sten! CDen udkommer 1. December og distribueres af DC Norden.
