Villages – Writing A Letter (This Christmas)
Here’s one that could be called a modern traditional Christmas song, but there’s no escaping that hard Cape Breton lilt. Jingle bells and a tin penny whistle might just be the recipe for a classic.
Neon Dreams – Christmas Without Snow
The 2016 NSMW Electronic Artist of the Year kicks off the list with a story about what the true meaning of Christmas is: snow. We can’t imagine a Christmas without it.

Here’s a band that’s taken the trouble to put together a complete Christmas album. From ‘This Is A Christmas Album’ comes ‘The Light In Your Window’ by Newfoundland folk trio The Once, it’s a song with a story common to a lot of Maritimers, hoping to see friends and family home for the holidays.
Joel Plaskett – Jesus Christ, It’s Christmas, Again!
