Album Notes
Music from the mountains has been dubbed as Appalachian style, but within the Appalachian Mountains there are the Blue Ridge Mountains. Tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains you will find one of the spots richest in history and beauty known as the Great Smoky Mountains.
Folks from the Smoky Mountains are known for their music as well as arts and crafts. The music from the Smoky Mountains has a special
blend of Appalachian sounds with a hint of German and Irish influence. Smoky Mountain Christmas is pure in authenticity and the renditions
of the Christmas Carols played throughout are just as if you were there in the late 1800s. The album includes indigenous song "The Gatlinburg
Carol" and a fun mountain version of "Home for the Holidays" with guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel.

Love that it has the feel of Christmas in the mountains
I love this cd.... Since I live close to the smokies it makes me want to be there.....I especially love Gatlinburg.....So the Gatlinburg Carol is special to me....Could you tell me if you would do a cd of Christmas songs such as Frosty the Snowman.....Jingle Bells etc...I feel those would make great songs to played by dobros etc.


Best Christmas cd in my collection.
High quality recording it captures the way it used to feel when I was a kid.


My Favorite Christmas CD
I have never been to the Smokey Mountains--but Christmas there must be really something! I really love this CD. It gives me a real Christmas feeling and I will probably continue to play it year round!!

I love this CD! It really puts you in the Christmas spirit. This album will definitely be worn out before Christmas is over!

CD Baby

Christmas never sounded so sweet and smoky- smoky like the Great Smoky Mountains, that is. Now bluegrass aficionados can have their favorite holiday songs and carols wrapped up in their preferred package of quality, ringing, tinkling bluegrass and country folk. Simple, light and lovely, "Smoky Mountain Christmas" shuffles through fourteen well-arranged carols for banjo, guitar, fiddle, upright bass and all the usual ingredients for a fingerpicking (and fingerlicking) delicious holiday. This disc will have you shelving the Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby, spurring a new, happy, holiday tradition.

Very Very Good
This was the best music that I have ever heard.
