A Cape Breton Christmas by Ashley MacIsaac

Ashley MacIsaac, one of Canada’s premier contemporary Celtic fiddlers releases this charming if a not rhythmically explosive tribute to the holiday season with the release A Cape Breton Christmas, originally released on June 6, 1993, and re-released January 8, 2007, on the Linus Entertainment Records label.  She is joined by Scott MacMillan on guitar and keyboards, Aurelie Cormier on vocals, Jim Faraday on percussion, Jeff McDonald on vocals, and Alan MacKenzie on pipes.  This ten-track album features the tracks Twas The Night Before Christmas/The Devil In The Kitchen, Fiddle Medley, Christmas Jugs And Reels…Midnight Clearance Sale, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and much more. I was impressed with how this album was arranged, performed and recorded.  It is refreshing to hear a different style of holiday classics.  This release is available on CD and digital download from Amazon, Itunes, Discogs and many other outlets where music is sold.
