New Alison Brown CD: Christmas gift offer

Stephanie Fields of Compass Records (USA) sends this message to the EBMA and other bluegrass associations:

I wanted to let you know about banjo player Alison Brown’s new holiday album Evergreen. It’s her first recording of seasonal music and features lots of banjo pickin’ alongside performances by bandmates Joe Craven and John R. Burr on a variety of well loved holiday classics. The album has received glowing advance press ('The Alison Brown Quartet has packaged a fun and very fine gift for holiday audiences. The musicianship is top notch. If you enjoy jazz or bluegrass, Evergreen should definitely be under your tree!' - and, since I know it’s tough to find fresh acoustic-oriented CDs for the season, I thought your members would be particularly interested to know about the release.

As a special promotion for the album, Compass Records is offering a bundled gift set that includes the CD paired with an adorable banjo cat wine caddie, customised especially for Alison by an artisan in Kentucky and one of her favorite finds of 2008. We would like to extend a 20% off coupon to your members for purchases on our website during November and December 2008, good towards the purchase of the banjo cat gift set or anything else in our catalog.

I look forward to hearing from you,
