Purged from the archives after some mild arm-twisting on Halifax Locals (travel back to the simpler times of 2004/2005), here are a couple fundraising compilations (proceeds go to Feed Nova Scotia and the Khyber Arts Society) featuring B.A. Johnson, The Maynards, Urban Surf Kings, Death by Nostalgia, and many more local acts.
Any other examples of home grown holiday music?
Fact: Jazz drummer and Halifax resident Jerry Granelli is the last surviving member of the Vince Guaraldi Trio, which wrote and performed A Charlie Brown Christmas. thestar.com
