The folks at Mountain Home/Crossroads have a special digital release of Christmas music featuring three of their top bluegrass artists. These are all new recordings which can be purchased for download either individually, or as an album.
A Mountain Home Christmas offers songs from Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Balsam Range and Darin & Brooke Aldridge. Doyle sings lead on The Louvin Brothers’ It’s Christmas Time, with quartet harmony throughout, and Darin & Brooke offer a reworked version of The Country Gentlemen’s Christmas Time Back Home. Balsam Range have a tender ballad called Mary’s Little Lamb by Dwight J Bradshaw.
You can hear all three songs in their entirety at the Mountain Home web site, and here are quick samples as well.
