A collection of Christmas Folksongs by Ruth Crawford Seeger selected and performed by her daughters; Peggy, Barbara and Penny and with children from the South Boston Music School. This compilation of less-commonly known Christmas songs represents a variety of Folksongs that find their origin in European and British Isles Ballads, as well as several African-American spirituals, hollers and chants from the slave era that express a deeply spiritual celebration of Christmas. Liner notes include history of each song by Charles and Peggy Seeger.
