Christmas Music of the Day, Part Three: Hymns, Carols, and Songs About Snow

It’s been a busy day.  Took the kids to the pumpkin patch, the same place we’ve been going since Audrey was about 3 years old.  We had a great time, and August really enjoyed it.  So there you have it.  My excuse for why I’m late today.

But here is today’s recommended Christmas album:

 

An Instrumental Classic

Hymns, Carols, and Songs About Snow
Tuck Andress
Windham Hill, 1991

Tuck Andress is a first-rate fingerstyle guitarist. This Christmas album represents some of his most impressive playing.  Sometimes, it sounds like three guitars are playing, but no, it’s only one, and he’s easily one of the most talented guitarists you’ll ever have the privilege of ever hearing.  Not a lot of folks have even heard of Tuck (normally one part of the duo husband and wife team, Tuck & Patti).  You also don’t have to be a fan of guitar music to enjoy it.  It’s a fun, upbeat recording with an ample sampling of the styles in the title: hymns, carols, and songs about snow.

It’s a GREAT album.  Expertly played and executed.  Find out more and listen to the recording herehere.
