A few years back, our music and film specialists at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Main offered up their suggestions for holiday tunes that were a little off the beaten path.
This year we’re making it even easier—here are ten albums we recommend that you can check out OR download and stream right now through the library with Hoopla. (And if you don’t yet have a Hoopla account, you can learn more about it here.)
The Staple Singers are well known for their R&B hits of the late 60s and early 70s, but prior to that, they were a really groovy gospel group. The Staple sisters all have wonderful voices, but it’s Pops Staples work on the steel guitar that really makes these gospel tunes something special.
