If you love Christmas songs and love banjo music, this is the perfect addition to your Christmas collection.

Very bright mood in most songs without butchering the classic Christmas songs!

So don't expect extreme banjo versions of Christmas standards. Also I would say that just because it's banjo doesn't automatically make it bluegrass, but it leans that way.

This is a collection of very tight, polished versions of Christmas standards with primarily banjo and some fiddle/bluegrassy instrumentation. It's mostly instrumental but with a few vocal tracks, and one track that is simply solo voice with no accompaniment.

I think the price is very good. If you want a new collection to freshen up your Christmas shuffle, and you have a hankering for banjo music, then I think you'll like this.

I like some bluegrass pickin' and this has plenty of that. It also has some country/folk Christmas tunes that I don't think I've ever heard before. Interesting, talented musicians.

I have to admit that I didn't have high expectations for this album, but it was something different from what I already have, so I gave it a chance. I'm so glad I did. The banjo picking gives a very upbeat feel to old familiar favorites. It's kind of like listening to marching tunes. Once the music starts, you find yourself wanting to smile and get up and move to the music. Most of the songs are just the right tempo for a brisk walk.

My only disappointment is that in addition to the banjo renditions, there are a few vocals. There's nothing wrong with the quality of the vocal pieces. It's just a personal preference. I'm not as fond of blue grass vocals as I am of banjo music. But that's the beauty of MP3 albums. You can choose to play the ones you like and skip over the few that aren't your cup of Christmas tea. If you love Christmas songs and love banjo music, this is the perfect addition to your Christmas collection.
