Fiona Joy Hawkins 'Christmas Joy' Album and Tour!

 

Grammy Award nominee Fiona Joy Hawkins brings you Christmas Joy, a CD that will allow you to experience Christmas as you never have. An Intoxicating mix of Gaelic, Didgeridoo, Paraguayan Harp, Soprano Sax, String Orchestra and a world of Rhythm that will free your spirit as it calms your senses.

Produced by Grammy Award Winners Corin Nelson and Will Ackerman, the recording offers an inventive and joyful approach; bringing life to music which has been taken for granted for decades. Both in her unique slant on traditional music and in her own compositions for this recording, Christmas Joy is a recording of stellar beauty for the season.

"Fiona Joy Hawkins breathes life into a traditional repertoire deeply in need of a new perspective and new energy. The recording offers an inventive and joyful approach to the music which has been taken for granted for decades. Both in her unique slant on traditional music and in her wonderful original compositions, Christmas Joy is an utterly brilliant creation and a recording of stellar beauty for the season."
