Jars of Clay and Sixpence None the Richer have announced the LOVE CAME DOWN: A CHRISTMAS PAGEANT tour. The groups will also be joined by Sara Groves and Leeland, as they embark on a 13 city tour filled with holiday songs and stories in celebration of the Christmas season.
Jars of Clay last year released their first holiday project, CHRISTMAS SONGS. This was the first holiday release from the band in their 12year career. The group delivered their versions to several memorable Christmas songs such as "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "In the Bleak Midwinter," and broke new ground with their own original holiday songs such as "Winter Skin" and "Evergreen." When they decided to go out on tour this season, they asked their friends Leigh Nash and Matt Slocum of Sixpence None The Richer to come along.
Grammy nominated band Sixpence None The Richer was in a similar position as Jars of Clay. Their loyal fans had been asking for a Christmas record for years, and they thought there was no better way to celebrate their reunion then with a special album for their fans. THE DAWN OF GRACE will be released this October and is made up of 10 tracks: eight traditional Christmas songs, including "Angels We Have Heard On High" and "Silent Night," featuring guest vocalist Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay, and two original Sixpence holiday tunes called "The Last Christmas" and "Christmas for Two."
