Album Notes
Since the release of their debut Christmas album "Eventide Lullabye" in 2006, Progressive Celtic Folk group Seasons has built up a Christmas show and repertoire quite unlike anything else around. As they celebrate the sounds of the holidays on their staple instruments of Celtic Harp and Hammered Dulcimer, the five siblings that comprise Seasons are often known to move from Traditional English Carol, to Johnny Marks standard to one of their own Christmas compositions in the space of a three song set. As audiences everywhere have responded overwhelmingly enthusiastically to this defiantly eclectic approach to the Christmas songbook, it is just this same spirit of holiday variety that Seasons brings to their newest Christmas collection and fifth album overall "Joy On High."

An album as varied as Christmas Music itself, "Joy On High" takes a jubilantly diverse approach to the holiday cannon, taking no qualms with placing an intricately arranged adaption of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker Suite" right alongside the swing rave-up of "Jingle in The Mood." While there is great variety in the music recorded, the album never fails to feel like a cohesive whole as all songs are brought to new life on the shimmering sounds of the Celtic Harp and Hammered Dulcimer.
Alongside these well-known standards, Seasons has also placed two of their own compositions: The gentle "Christmas Night" explores the feelings of Saint Joseph during that very first Christmas, While "Last Dance" pays a tribute to all those who spend the holidays apart from loved ones in service to our country. Both songs are sung beautifully by founding Seasons member Mary-Kate Spring Lee, an award-winning folk artist in her own right. Whether it is breathing a fresh spirit into a much loved holiday classic, or introducing your ears to a new Christmas songs that feels like and old friend, "Joy On High" is sure to become an essential part of of your holiday music collection for years to come!
