For the last several Christmas seasons, we have been asked if we have recorded any of the wonderful western tunes that we do in our Christmas shows. This CD is our response to those requests, and our way of wishing you a Merry Christmas whenever you want to enjoy the music of the season. In addition to the traditional tunes in the Christmas Medley, and Silent Night, we have included some songs that evoke images of the cowboy in the Christmas season. We have even poked a little fun at the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas." What People are saying about "The Christmas Trail": The rustic folk feel and frailing banjo style of the Yampa Valley Boys could bring an extra homespun element to your holidays this year! Launching the collection with Don Edwards' melodic treatment of the Badger Clark title track poem sets the tone well. Songwise [the Yampa Valley Boys]...have nicely side-stepped some of the usual players on such CD's and still kept the idea. There are enough of the requisite standards...several of them put into a convenient package...as a medley. I'm thinking as the season approaches each year you'll likely like to haul out "The Christmas Trail" to frail your way into the wassail!!
