The Essential Advent Calendar: December 24

Essential Advent Calendar: December 23 – Americana Duo The Imaginaries Announce “Hometown Christmas” Holiday Collaboration

Oklahoma’s favourite Americana husband / wife duo, The Imaginaries, Shane Henry (guitar, vocals) and Maggie McClure (keys, piano, vocals), are behind the door on December 23 of our Essential Advent Calendar, singing their song, ‘Hometown Christmas’.

The Imaginaries filmed a festive music video for their original holiday song, in and around the Chickasha area, where Shane is from (socially distanced of course), with local area businesses and a small cast / crew. ‘Hometown Christmas’ is the title track from The Imaginaries’ album by the same name, and features 13 tracks of originals and some of the duo’s holiday favourites.

“‘Hometown Christmas’ is a very special song to us about coming home for the holidays,” say The Imaginaries. “There’s nothing quite like that feeling. We’re very lucky to already be home in Oklahoma with our families and friends during the holidays because we know this year has been a very difficult one and a lot of people can’t go home to be with their loved ones so we dedicate this song and video to them.”
