After picking up the ARIA Award for Best Blues and Roots Album at last weeks ceremony, The Tesky Brothers are spreading Christmas cheer with the release of two original holiday themed tunes, Dreaming Of A Christmas With You and Highway Home For Christmas.
Speaking of the new tracks, the band shared: “Our first Christmas tunes! These two songs are both inspired by the lockdown we all faced this year. The story speaks to the separation of lovers and family, in Victoria’s case divided by the great Murray River, holding onto hope for a reunion at Christmas. You’ve got a lonely soul at home who's ‘Dreaming Of A Christmas With You’, while their loved one is hightailing it down the ‘Highway Home For Christmas’. After a slow year off the tools, it was so much fun to get back together and record these tracks live in the room.”
As if that wasn’t enough, the four-piece have also announced a special Christmas performance event with Orchestra Victoria. Taking place at Hamer Hall, the event will be premiere on YouTube, giving fans all over the globe the chance to join in on all the fun. As well as debuting their new Christmas tunes live, the band will be working with arranger Jamie Messenger to reimagine their classic songs over a 50-minute performance. Fans can watch the performance live here on December 22
