ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
about CHRISTMAS: THE STORY OF STORIES
Rootsy, playful, thoughtful, and alive with wonder, CHRISTMAS: THE STORY OF STORIES features 9 Carolyn Arends’ originals, 3 traditional classics, and a rollicking cover of a Rich Mullins’ tune. Produced as a duo record with Carolyn’s longtime musical partner Spencer Capier, the project is an organic feast of fiddles, mandolins, guitars and bouzoukis, all centered around Arends’ fresh and poignant glimpses into the greatest story ever told.

Recorded on the 10-year anniversary of Carolyn’s first Christmas project (CHRISTMAS: THE IRRATIONAL SEASON), the new disc once again showcases songs written each Christmas Eve for Carolyn’s home church in Coquitlam, BC. It also features several musicians Vancouverites will recognize from Pacific Theatre’s longstanding CHRISTMAS PRESENCE series–the annual music and story celebration that has inspired (and often inaugurated) many of Carolyn’s yearly songs.

CHRISTMAS: THE STORY OF STORIES was recorded at the insistence of Carolyn’s fans, many of whom backed the project via a crowdfunding campaign that exceeded its initial goal within the first 24 hours and placed the project in the Top-10 Canadian music projects ever funded on Kickstarter.
