Monica Rizzio has performed in the folk acoustic band Tripping Lily for the past 10 years (and still continues to perform with). This album brings to life many traditional Christmas songs with lively guitar and piano solos, while a non-traditional holiday song, Walking in the Air, truly feels like Monica Rizzio's voice is taking you for a sleigh ride. A very unique a cappella version of Away in a Manger, performed by Monica and Nicki Parrott, is the perfect blend of two spirits. You can feel the same feeling listening to this song as they felt while recording it. The final song, the traditional gospel hymn, Amazing Grace, shows the range of Monica Rizzio's musical instrument talents as well as her voice. Her beautiful ukulele leads you on a journey through one of the most recognizable songs and you will find yourself joining in with the whole band as they bring the CD to a climatic end.
