what people are saying about Bob's music:
I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love your
new CD, A Christmas Melody. As I suspected, based on your
past work, it is excellent. My two favorites thus far are,
"Madison's Christmas" and "Christmas Like A
Lullaby", however, I have to say that I love all the
songs. I find myself listening to the CD over and over. I
truly hope you will continue to record more Christmas music
in the future. Thanks again for the beautiful holiday music.

There’s no place like home for the holidays, so gather
the family as Bob takes you home with his unique and personal
touch to old-time Christmas classics. The richness of his
guitar adds a warmth and “back home” feel to Christmas
favorites inviting you to peek through the window of Christmases
past where treasured memories are once again renewed through
the magic of his music. If you can’t go home for the
holidays, your ticket home is in Bob’s A Hometown Christmas.
Enjoy the trip again and again. Bob’s second release
Dreams of Christmas is an appropriate name for his newest
CD, as he invites the listener on an emotional, dream-like
journey prompting emotional responses to each carefully selected
song. Bob touches on the joys of Christmas with Sleigh Ride
and Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring to the deeply felt,
spiritual expression of Ava Maria. His original offering,
“Miranda’s Passage” has such depth that
the listener can’t help but call to mind their own visual
expressions from deep within. Bob’s unique treatment
of Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy conjures up visions of dainty
fairies lightly dancing to the lilting melody. The pure and
simple strains of his guitar brings a mellow, gentle touch
to traditional favorites O Little Town of Bethlehem, The Little
Drummer Boy and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. As Bob’s
invited guest, enjoy this wonderful journey though the many
moods of Christmas.

Sirois breathes freshness into traditional holiday classics
with brilliant compilation and accompaniment. His own style
- clearly a blend of classical/folk/country guitar playing
- yields one of the season's best holiday treats. Makes a
great, unique gift for all those hard to buy for and fits
in a stocking quite well. If you enjoy any of the Windham
Hill artists, you'll love this disc"
– Sinead Fennell, Port Laois, Ireland.
been following Bob Sirois' career for awhile and I have to
relate that I love all his music. I think his arrangements
are fresh and unique. I also love the fact that each CD has
it's own identity. Dreams of Christmas is awesome, warm, inviting
and moody. He tends to include some songs that many other
artists do not so it creates an interesting diversity. I have
both of his Christmas records and sincerely hope he will create
more. For anyone interested his website is [...]. I highly
recommend this CD to one and all"

"This CD brings back the joy I felt as a child celebrating
Christmas. The traditional music and instrumental quality
sets the standard for all of my other Christmas CDs. This
CD is not just for the holidays"
– Tom Waters, Charleston WV.
"The music on this CD is simply the best antidote for
holiday insanity. I've even listened to its soothing melodies
in the middle of July! It is truly remarkable how much talent
is evident here, and the recording is as polished as it is
caringly mastered. Every track is equally enjoyable - so much
so that I have purchased a number of these for Christmas presents....
I can only hope that this will be Bob's first of a multitude
of musical gifts to the world"
– Moki Kokoris, North Salem, NY
"If you really want to feel the magic of Christmas, this
CD is a must! Bob Sirois's "A Hometown Christmas"
is one of the most beautifully arranged "easy listner"
pieces I have in my massive holiday collection. You can feel
his love for the music in every song. It relaxingly puts you
in the festive mood, and makes you feel there is not a care
in the world. You just drift away with the familiar music
and feel the spirit. Don't miss out on this one, better yet,
share it with your loved ones"
– Cathy Bergmann, Clinton IA
"Bob Sirois' "A Hometown Christmas" is a beautifully
arranged Folk style, Instrumental Christmas record. His renditions
of these wonderful Christmas classics convey a peaceful, warm
and sometimes nostalgic feeling of Christmas old and new.
It was easy to immediately fall in love with every song on
this record. I also like the fact that he included a female
vocalist on two tracks(Oh Holy Night & What Child Is This).
She has a truly wonderful voice which adds variety to this
already amazing CD. And for all you John Denver fans, Bob
did a great Instrumental rendition of "Aspenglow"
and "Christmas For Cowboys". I recognize these songs
from the late John Denver's "Rocky Mountain Christmas"
record as I own this album as well. I won't hesitate to say
that I would highy recommend "A Hometown Christmas"
to anyone, anywhere, at any time. It's a phenomenal album
which is destined to become a Christmas classic"
– Sara A
"Oh my, your music is simply beautiful I absolutely LOVE
Acoustic Guitar music. I know you'll get lot's of air time,
this will definitely be a best seller every Christmas season.
Just love your music"
"The selections Bob chooses are played, sung and recorded
so well with such a nice, clean and clear sound. So beautiful
to listen to. We're looking forward to hearing your next album"
– Karen & Mike
"I just purchased your new cd and simply loved it...
Very melodic and light hearted, easy listening. I love the
guitar/mandolin work. I especially liked your originals on
the cd. This is a great Christmas album. Hope you make many
"I find myself listening to your CDs over and over. This
year they were the only two I had in my van and I drive a
lot at work so I thought I'd better get some of my other x-mas
music out for variety. After your beautiful music, I literally
threw the others out, no comparison. When I hear some of the
same songs in the stores, I find they are terrible next to
yours. I'm a true fan, a "groupie"
