Low & Friends Christmas

Few rock acts can generate the kind of serene, worshipful and still somewhat edgy sound that Duluth’s harmonious trio Low did so well on its 1999 indie LP “Christmas,” which Rolling Stone ranked No. 18 among 40 essential Christmas albums a few years ago. The collection still generates annual love and a decent amount of royalty revenue for the band, especially in the United Kingdom, where Low is playing a dozen Christmas concerts this month. Its only other such show is in Minneapolis, where the band will once again reflect the true spirit of the season by bringing out musical friends and giving proceeds to Second Harvest Heartland food shelves.
