Rest Restless Children Single Art

Rest, Restless Children (single)

Christina Blust & Jimmy Rinehart

Release date: November 20, 2019

Part acoustic folk lullaby and part secular hymn, “Rest, Restless Children” is a sweet, lyrical, winter solstice carol.

Coming November 20!

Christina Blust’s crystal voice lilts over Jimmy Rinehart’s skillful guitar arrangement of the traditional “Land of Rest” melody. Together they breathe life into poet Mark Minster’s canticle of sleepy children and long, starry nights. 

Recorded live in October 2018 in Terre Haute, Indiana, by Eric Rasley, who held Jimmy & Christina’s baby Dottie on his lap during the session. (Listen closely and you’ll hear her babbling.)
