European Blues Award-winning guitarist Erja Lyytinen released her Christmas single Silent Night on Wednesday November 10th. Pre-save/stream the single at https://ffm.to/12a4xyl.
“Every year we play Silent Night as part of our annual Blue Christmas tour in Finland,” says Erja. “I’ve always wanted to record our version of this timeless festive number. The song has such a beautiful melody. We did our best to capture the atmospheric mood of the song. We didn’t want to overdo anything, but to stay true to the Christmas spirit of the song. Our rendition is like a warm blanket that you wrap around yourself whilst sitting cosy in front of the fire. The song is heartfelt and elegant with a subtle arrangement.”
Silent Night is released during the lead up until Erja’s eagerly anticipated return to the UK for her first tour since 2019.The award-winning Finnish slide guitarist will tour the UK from February 4–12, 2022. Tickets are available via www.erjalyytinen.com/tour.
