Christmas Grass: A Celebration of Christmas, Bluegrass Style(Audium)
O Christmas Tree(Rounder)
Here are two nearly interchangeable collections of Christmas tunes done bluegrass style. Christmas Grass is a mix-and-match set of musicians, including Alison Krauss, Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, and Ronnie McCoury on a set that's all instrumental except for one track. It's expertly played, with a delightful flair. O Christmas Tree features Rounder artists like Vincent, the Cox Family, and Tony Trishka in a charming array of different voices and styles.
