When it comes to Christmas music, I’m typically a Vince Guaraldi Trio kind of lady. This year, I’m enjoying this collection of Christmas folk songs by the Seeger Sisters.
A collection of Christmas folksongs by Ruth Crawford Seeger, selected and performed by her daughters Peggy, Barbara and Penny, with children from the South Boston Music School. This compilation of less-commonly known Christmas songs represents a variety of folksongs that find their origin in European and British Isles Ballads, as well as several African-American spirituals, hollers and chants from the slave era that express a deeply spiritual celebration of Christmas. Liner notes include history of each song by Charles and Peggy Seeger.
