Away In A Manger from Redhead Express

Redhead Express is sharing their Christmas spirit this season with a music video of their arrangement of the classic, Away In A Manger. Featuring the four Walker sisters from Alaska, redheads all, the video captures their blending of the bluegrass instruments with the familiar sound of this 19th century carol.

Kendra Walker is on guitar and lead vocals, with LaRae Walker on banjo, Alisa Walker on fiddle, and Meghan Walker on bass.


The family has become prominent in bluegrass, largely through their many high-quality music videos, created by their own family production company, Red Handed Productions. Brothers Sean and Jospeh Walker run the business along with Darryl Cunningham. Often these videos are their bluegrass arrangements of pop music hits, bringing the grass to viewers worldwide who may not know much about our music. Pretty girls with banjos and fiddles is enough to capture anyone’s attention!

They finance these often lavish productions through crowdsourcing at Patreon, where patrons have access to exclusive content from the Walkers. A pair of albums, Covers and Covers 2, include their takes on pop, country, and Gospel hits.

The Walkers stay on the road year round, and are spending much of December in Key West, FL. Tough duty, that.

Check them, and their many videos, out online.
