CELTIC CHRISTMAS - Putumayo World Music

Out come the fiddles, harps, accordions and penny whistles for “Celtic Christmas,” as singers and groups like Aine Minogue, David Arkenstone and DruidStone arrange Celtic and American holiday songs — and a French one, “Noel Nouvelet” — for (mostly) traditional instruments. There’s even a “White Christmas” in Gaelic. It’s a cozy, folksy collection, mingling instrumental and vocal tracks. And it reclaims a wistful side in Dougie MacLean’s version of “Auld Lang Syne. From the New York Times Holiday Gift Guide, November 25, 2011. JON PARELES

Destined to be another Christmas Classic!

No holiday or more specifically Christmas party is complete without Putumayo's Christmas music collections. Celtic Christmas is a great addition to the series. It is full of traditional as well as updated songs that resonate good will toward all.
