What does winter mean to you? Maybe you get snowed in…and you like it. Maybe romance knocks at your door every time the temperature falls. Maybe winter, for you, is a magical, holiday time of year, the time of year when things that don’t normally happen…happen.
Whatever best describes your feelings about winter, ‘Christmas on the Lam and Other Songs from the Season’ has the perfect song, just for you. There are familiar holiday favorites, intertwined with songs you’ve probably never heard before, and the ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future all co-exist pretty peacefully over the course of 12 delightful tracks.
From the horn-heavy version of “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” done by Davina and the Vagabonds, to the dreamy, acoustic version of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Song for a Winter’s Night” offered up by The Pines, from the classic heartbreak of “Blue Christmas,” delivered by one of folk music’s power couples, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, to the playful catch-me-under-the-mistletoe vibe Robin and Linda Williams share in “Together All Alone,” ‘Christmas on the Lam and Other Songs from the Season’ helps you celebrate all aspects of winter.
This is the first collection to honor the winter holiday season that Red House Records, home to a truly amazing roster of folk, roots, and Americana artists, has ever released. And what a way to jump onto the winter holiday bandwagon! With performances by The Wailin’ Jennys, Jorma Kaukonen, Charlie Parr, Suzzy Roche and John Gorka, among so many others, it’s definitely an album that’ll make its way to the top of your holiday pile.
