Birch Beer Records News…Christmas in October?

And, as I start saying in February every year, Christmas is right around the corner! And it will be a very Merry Birch Beer holiday at that! I am tickled all red and green that Birch Beer Records is releasing a Christmas album: Birch Beer Christmas Cheer! The CD will be available on Tuesday, November 30 and includes six original Christmas songs from Dan Cloutier, Levi Schmidt, and yours truly, along with a few traditional songs with our very own BBR spin on them.

I am super excited about this record, and the whole BBR gang is thinking of all kinds of creative ways to get our music out there. We’ll even have download cards that you can send out to your holiday-giving list, if you want to spread our music around as well! And there will be shows…you can count on it!  Make sure to like Birch Beer Records on Facebook to keep up with all the news!
