The 2006 Christmas CD is almost here!
The master is off the the replicator and the CDs are being manufactured.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone that contributed and submitted songs for this project. All of the music sent was excellent We had too many songs submitted and we wish we could have included them all. My apologies as we simply ran out of space and time and we had to make some hard and very difficult choices (and some at the last minute). Next year perhaps we could start a little earlier and do a double album or DVD.
Thanks to Santa Dan Kury (DPDan) for all his magnificent work putting this all together esepcially during a difficult time of his life.
What makes this album special is that it was made by people in our community out of a spirit of giving and caring. Musicians young and old, from different nations and languages, of all skill levels and training, from different backgrounds and musical tastes - but all united in making this special holiday collection.
If you want a free CD please let me know and also send me an email (my PM gets filled often) with your mailing address or send a self-addressed stamped envelop to me at Box 400, Orcas, WA 98280 USA.
