Badgered by request after request here in Madison, Wisconsin, "When are you folks going to come out with another Christmas music CD?," we finally got our second Christmas CD all recorded this summer and have it ready for you now, just before Thanksgiving, 2002.
And it's a good one! All are original arrangements...most arranged specially just for us, and all are unique...haunting, jazzy, beautiful, or just plain quirky.... We think you will be moved by our sound. You won't hear anything like us anywhere else.
We don't play just Christmas music. We find reasons for joy and the celebration of peace in the natural world of snow and cold that surrounds us here in Wisconsin. Our musical choices reflect our sentiment. If you were to visit our Madison Christmas concerts, you would discover performances that are interspersed with poetry, song, and thoughtful stories.
You know, if you enjoy this CD, you might want to check out our "SCENES" CD, which includes a narration about winter, "January Thaw," an excerpt set to music from naturalist, Aldo Leopold's "Sand County Almanac." Also available on CDBaby.com!
