winter talesWinter White and Baltic Blue
There’s no denying it, winter is here.  The streets have been blanketed and are at times impassable. The boots and jackets are out of the closet, strewn about.  We’ve packed our larders and we’re in for the long haul.  And yet, winter holds its own form of beauty.  For the introvert, it’s a season of lovely introspection; for the extrovert, an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while everyone else is in.  This is the season of sledding and skiing, reading and cooking.  But what will we be listening to as we wait for the Northern Lights to appear? We’ve ventured out to gather new music like firewood: sounds as cold as the midnight frost or as warm as the noontime hearth.  New sounds are being added every day.  May your next favorite album be found right here!
