2011 Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Putumayo Celtic Christmas CD {Review + Giveaway}

Putamayo has just released  “Celtic Christmas“, a wonderfully enchanting collection of music put together to lift the spirits and put you in that cheerful holiday mood. On this particular collection listeners an enjoy Celtic interpretations of well known Christmas songs from Ireland, England, Scotland, Canada, and the USA.

An associates degree in
music online
is what some people look into when they love great music.

As soon as you pop this cd in you’ll be welcomed by a joyful rendition of “Here We Come A-Wassalling”sung by the Albion Christmas Band. Then you will continue on with songs that are completely instrumental as well as sung by a variety of artist.

I quite enjoyed the light hearted yet deep instrumentals sounds of each track. You are in for a treat with the uplifting yet comforting playing of flute, harp, guitar, mandolin, and fiddle.  There are also solos as some songs and harmoniousness grouped singing on others.

There are eleven tracks total and the  collection run time is pretty close to thirty-five minutes. Tracks my family loved were “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Little Drummer Girl, and an original Gaelic recording of “Nollaig Bhan (White Christmas)”.

Music is always wonderful gift to share with others. I don’t know about you but music for me triggers memories.  I would encourage you to think about picking this up to listen to through the holiday season. It would be wonderful to  listen to in the car, when you are baking those holiday goodies, wrapping those presents, and cuddled up with the family on the couch next to the fire. And while you are it, check out the other offerings by Putumayo as they would make great stocking stuffers.
