It's Christmas on Folk Alley
December 2, 2003
Christmas music has become stale. We've been subjected to the same dozen songs from the same recordings every year. If we allow the music of the holiday to become mundane, then Christmas itself is in trouble. The artists of Folk Alley are up to the challenge. Throughout December, you'll be hearing those same 12 songs, but with inventive arrangements and differences in style. The songs become new again as the personality of each singer or player shine through them. And if you think all of the holiday songs have been written, keep listening. John McCutcheon, Dave Carter, Janis Ian, Laurie Lewis, and scores of undiscovered talents have written new songs, which will soon become memorable. Mostly, you'll be offered what is hard to find on the internet, on the radio, or during Christmas for that matter - SURPRISES. Don't accept less.
