ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What The Critics Say About The Trail Band


"... an absolute must!"
Victory Music Review

"...sparkling ensemble interplay..."
Marty Hughley, The Oregonian

"A stellar cast of musicians... delightful arrangements..."
Tim Casebeer Willamette Week

"...nothing short of remarkable." Nancy Helsabeck, Siuslaw News

"The Trail Band sang like angels and played like virtuosos…"
Fred Crafts, Eugene Register-Guard 12/98

"... will perk up your spirits, cause you to dance, and make you feel good to be alive." Sam Richardson, Music Sidelines

"In the last of 5 sold-out performances, the eight member group put on an exuberant, classy and wide-ranging display of original tunes and fresh arrangements of tradtional folk and acoustic music that delighted the crowd with humor and musicianship." Lynn Darroch, The Oregonian

"One can only express a sort of wonder toward the uniqueness of a band that incorporates antique brass instruments and resounding vocal pitch..." Ryan Parker, The O.S.U. Barometer

"The band's music is good-natured, harmonious, and certainly retains it's own individuality." John Foyston, The Oregonian

"The Trail Band could be Oregon's happiest musical accident. It was formed specifically to perform during a historical play commemorating the Oregon Trail just for 1993. Luckily for us, the band stayed together, recording five fine CDs and playing some of the sweetest-sounding traditional and old-time music you're likely to hear anywhere."
The Oregonian 4/98

"Happy, homespun... a delightful old-fashionedy sound, from spirited fiddles to a spritely brass ensemble..."
Eugene Register-Guard

"The Trail Band brought the capacity audience to it's feet more than once. They are just incredibly skilled and great entertainers, too."
The Patrice Press, Tuscon, Arizona

Annie Cole-Bradley

This is a very good CD that will be a good addition to anyone's collection.
This CD is a comprehensive and inclusive of all sorts of holiday pieces. Each song is well done and satisfying.

Barbara Bartel

Best Xmas album EVER!
This music is the perfect choice for any Christmas party...It doesn't interfere with conversation but adds the correct holiday atmosphere with a blend of old favorites and lesser known classics.

Faith Nelson

What a wonderful way to be introduced to Trailband's work!
I loved the instrumentation and arrangements. It has been hard to play anything else.

william Elliott


The Trail Band is a smooth well-oiled musical machine that hits on all cylinders with their Christmas albums.
