Christmas Music Review: O Christmas Tree: A Bluegrass Collection for the Holidays (2002)
Bluegrass and Christmas music has a different sound. Sometimes it works, well it seems to always work instrumentally; but sometimes the vocals are too much something that isn't very enjoyable. However this is not true for all, but just a few of the songs. For example I didn't care for Ron Stewart's version of "Silver Bells" but the Cox family "Go Tell It on the Mountain" is just wonderful. "O Come All Ye Faithful" is a banjo number that is very effective. James King Band performs "Call Collect on Christmas" reminding of the need for family on Christmas. Doyle Lawson (and others) sing a nice Acapella medley version of "The First Noel" "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" and "Joy to the World."
