Rick Lang has a long-standing love of the winter-season. He lives in New Hampshire, a state where dreaming of a white Christmas is often a reality. The Season of My Heart, a project with thirteen originals written or co-written by Lang, celebrates the traditions, excitement and magic of winter. His inspiration stems from such images as the baby Jesus asleep in His mother’s arms, the Christmas tree, an evening sleigh ride, the falling snow, the star of the east, and the sound of angelic voices. An 8-page CD insert includes all lyrics. The album’s instrumentation is acoustic with primarily guitar, bass, mandolin, Dobro and piano. Rick Lang is an excellent songwriter, and you can hear his material on records from several well-known bluegrass groups. His release celebrating winter is one that is comfortably warm and would make a good companion to a crackling fire and a glass of eggnog. Each sparkling, happy song is like a musical holiday card that brightens the day.
