Teresse Alderson

An Appalachian Winter
Wonderful selection of traditional and non-traditional carols. If you are looking for something other than the usual Christmas songs and like the hammerer dulcimer/folk instruments sound this is an excellent choice.

Elizabeth E. Piephoff

An Appalachian Winter
Soothing, lovely and ethereal music for the Christmas season. Over two weeks after Christmas and still listening...just can't yet put it away for next year!

Marlene Marquette

An Appalachian Winter
This CD of An Appalachian Winter is beautiful. The last two snow storms that we had here in Colorado,I played the CD. It was very relasting.
