AllMusic Review by

This bright Putumayo holiday collection features contemporary artists interpreting Christmas classics from a Celtic perspective, which makes for a refreshing seasonal playlist. Highlights include Lasairfhiona Ni Chonaola's dreamy and relaxed "Nollaig Bhan," a wonderful version of "White Christmas" redone in Gaelic, the Gothard Sisters' recast of “Little Drummer Girl” featuring plenty of fiddle, David Huntsinger's "Angels We Have Heard on High" played as an Irish reel, and Steve Schuch & the Night Heron Consort's mandolin-led “Joy to the World,” among others. It all adds up to a fun and joyous listen.
