Crowe on Christmas

Nanaimo's Allison Crowe has recorded a six-song Christmas CD called Tidings . Crowe and her drummer and bassist do live-off-the-floor versions of the traditional "Silent Night," "In the Bleak Midwinter" and "O Holy Night" plus three other appropriately but imaginatively selected songs, Leonard Cohen 's "Hallelujah," The Stones' "Shine a Light," and Sarah McLachlan 's "Angel." It's Crowe's best-recorded work so far, featuring soulful performances.
