xmasbylakeLooking for a Christmas gift that sings “Duluth”?  Check out the 9th volume of Christmas by the Lake. Produced by my friend, Tracy Lundeen, this year’s 2 disc set features 41 songs all performed by acts, singers and musicians throughout the region.

You’ll find the classic tunes of the season, as well as some originals, and all the proceeds go to support local charity, The Bluebird Foundation.  The foundation works to be an advocate for area youth in the performing arts and to create awareness of the power of the arts to enhance self-esteem, to increase understanding of others, and to improve academic performance.  Sounds like #kidsfirst to me!

You can purchase Christmas by the Lake around town at Super One Food locations, Engwall locations, Pam’s Hallmark, Schmitt Music, Big Daddy’s Burgers and online here.  They are only $15 each!

A little blue birdie told me that the songs should also be available for download in early December.

If you’re looking for something for that hard to find person, please consider this gift… it’s like giving twice – once to your loved one, and once to all the kids participating in the Bluebird Foundation.
