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 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.

This is a fantastic piece of Christmas music that transports you to a time where Christmas was celebrated without large orchestras, professional bands, and various stars' "Christmas Albums". This is good old fashioned country/bluegrass music that is core to the season.

I'm a girl with some country roots so when I saw this...I thought this would mix up some of our Christmas morning music. I am sick of Mariah Carey singing "All I want for Christmas is You" and any version of "Santa Baby." I want to hear the Christmas tunes but give me something different! I downloaded this at a ridiculously low price and I know my husband is going to get a kick out of it on Christmas!

Like the music. But ZERO stars to Amazon for making me use their own download software.
Had to uninstall the last version of their downloader because AVAST Anti Virus Software popped up with a warning telling me there was a suspicious problem.
So I try to avoid buying anything that I have to download from Amazon. I could not find Christmas Pickins: A Banjo Christmas any where else.

Very nice album with numerous songs--several are instrumental only and others with vocal as well. Many of the songs are played in such a refreshingly unique way it is like hearing them again for the first time. A few of the vocal songs are not what I would choose but there is such an abundance of great songs that it still rates at five stars plus for me!
