Review from Wesley Owen
'An extended EP of songs for and about Bethlehem, in Garth Hewitt's acoustic-roots style.
Garth Hewitt writes poignant songs that express the plight of a people in a very difficult situation. Rootsy acoustic honest songs including the classic They've Cancelled Christmas In Bethlehem.
Garth Hewitt has spent a great deal of his life travelling to some of the world's most desperate places and political hotspots to create songs that tell the stories of those who otherwise are voiceless. This EP features the key song They've Cancelled Christmas In Bethlehem (The Wall Must Fall) which is a moving prayer for the people of Bethlehem. Together it raised awareness and concern for what's happening behind the wall. It has become a YouTube hit and alongside songs like Hidden From View, Candle Of Hope and The Death Of Trees, it is delivered in Hewitt's engaging trademark rootsy acoustic style.
Following the huge interest in Garth's song, They've Cancelled Christmas In Bethlehem (The Wall Must Fall) last year, this EP is a prayer for the people of Bethlehem who are suffering a devastating impact from the separation wall that now surrounds them.
In these days when Christian musicians and song writers are rediscovering a social conscience, Garth Hewitt is a master craftsman!'
