   Alison Krause is one of the most talented performers of our time. It's time for her to have her turn in our Yuletide section.

   For many, who really know me, you know that I love good music, and will not tolerate the bad that tends to prevail among those who only listen to what is popular - i.e. pop music - which drives what is promoted in the music business. Long I have asked, who will be the next Eric Clapton, the new Jimi Hendrix, the next Duane Allman, the new Stevie Ray Vaughn? For many decades, there has been no one, until of recent ... Allison Krause and Union Station (with an emphasis on Union Station).


   On these two Christmas carols, we have Allison and Yo-Yo Ma, who is, arguably, one of the great cellist that has ever lived. Please enjoy.
