ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The McKrells did so many things in their Christmas concert Sunday afternoon at Hart Theatre that anyone who didn't vividly recall their own Christmas traditions under the inspiration of the band's songs and recitations, carols, hymns and bluegrass breakdowns didn't have any such traditions when they came in. But they certainly did when they left.  The McKrells' skill and sincerity kept corniness firmly at bay. The show built such peaks of real sentiment that among the flurries of holiday season shows, it will be hard to top.
The Daily Gazette

"This group is a collaberation of red hot pickers who all happen to love Celtic Music. It's deep in their genes and comes out in a unique mix of Irish Bluegrass experimental music that is catching on like crazy"
Winterhawk Bluegrass Festival program.

With The Fureys at Carnegie Hall New York.
"The McKrells Carnegie Hall performance was golden and triumphant, every solo met with applause and every song punctuated with a roar" Paul Rapp Metroland Magazine.

With Mary Black
"With their unearthly combination of emotive vocals and fiery picking, The McKrells seem poised to fill the huge void left by the demise of New Grass Revival. The only thing between the McKrells and world domination is time."Dave Malachowski. Metroland Magazine.
With Lonestar
If bands were paid by the number of notes they played, soulfulness, conviction, confidence or black leather the McKrells would have bagged most of the money Thursday. Kevin McKrell owned the stage and crowd as usual and sang"It's Not Me"as the country-est song of the night. His new"I Will Cry"about watching the news following 9/11 (Milonovich quoting"America the Beautiful"in the coda) won a standing ovation.
   So did their set as a whole. They were a delicious bonus and surprise.
The Daily Gazette
With Altan
"Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh, of Altan, hailed The McKrells performance as brilliant, and added"we were a little afraid to come out here on stage after their performance."
Greg Haymes Times Union.
With Solas
"Solas and The McKrells put on a stirring show. Kevin McKrell sang with a madman's fervor and a lover's tenderness. They would have stolen the show from anyone but Solas."
Mike Hochenadel The Daily Gazette

"It's positivly exhilarating to be swept away by a regional band's CD. The songwriting talent in this band is mind boggling. Why aren't The McKrells better known and why aren't they with a major recording label???"
Bluegrass Now Magazine.

Look forward to pulling it out every year - Fond Family Tradition
We've owned this CD for several years. Not one year has gone by since our oldest child was 2 (2000), that we haven't heard the squeal of delight followed by pleads for us to put on Daddy It's Snowing out today. Nor has there been a Christmas Eve when we haven't gathered round to hear Kevin's rendition of 'Twas the night before Christmas. A unique, fun filled, and heart warming Christmas Album. Everyone needs one!
