It’s coming on “Tidings” – and that means the voice of Allison Crowe rings out traditional favourites, Christmas carols such as “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”, “In the Bleak Midwinter”, and “The First Noel”, alongside the modern canon of Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, Lennon & McCartney and original song selections including the elegiac “Arthur”, and the epic, foot-stomping, “Disease”.

Allison’s just wrapped up her second engagement of this year with Canada’s amazing Royal Winnipeg Ballet – performing songs of Leonard Cohen. With the love experienced on the dance stage, as well as recent European concert dates and this Summer’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival hit, “Newfoundland Vinyl”, still touching souls – it’s time to rally a repertoire that decks us all in comfort and joy whatever life’s circumstances.

Fix up some cocoa, or whatever you like, hang the stockings, and settle in for "A Corner Brook Tidings" on Rogers.

A live album, “Tidings Concert”, has just been released on iTunes + as a sister project: http://music.allisoncrowe.com/album/tidings-concert
