Nokie Edwards is the golden-age lead guitarist of the instrumental rock super group, The Ventures. His playing and recording luanched a million guitarists around the world. On this roots holiday album called by the Dallas News "the season's coolest record," Nokie is joined by Texas Swing Kings, The Light Crust Doughboys and Buck Owens' and Rick Nelson's steel guitar band member, Tom Brumley, for a mesmerizing, unique and original roots-folk gem of an album.
Christmas has never sounded more "American" or "Fretted-instrument-authentic" than when you hear on this album Christmas carols starring multiple banjos and Nokie. Christmas also never sounded more "surf-meets-folk" than when you hear on this album twanging guitars and "Rockin' Christmas cheer, 50s-60s-70s-style." Instrumental classics, a sprinkling of Gospel harmony and a slew of Roots/Americana musical instruments make this Christmas album an "essential" in every folk-country-americana Christmas catalog collection.
