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.

NOTE: Each CD copy of the album comes with a free downloadable songbook, containing lyrics, chords and stories behind the songs. Look on the back page of the booklet for the songbook link.
