PBS sensation and Emmy Award-winning folk artist Annie Moses Band is spreading holiday cheer this season with the release of its original musical arrangements of the Christmas classics "O Holy Night" and "Carol of the Bells." Both beloved holiday favorites are available now for purchase digitally at the Annie Moses Band Store, as well as at iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon.com and more digital retailers globally from ManAlive Records with distribution from The Fuel Music.
Vocalist/Violinist Annie Wolaver Dupre shares, "'O Holy Night' and 'Carol of the Bells' are two of our Christmas concert favorites! 'O Holy Night' is such an inspired song of Christmas that even moves us to tears as we perform it live, and 'Carol of the Bells' is a burst of dynamic energy, also known as the song that gets us dancing on stage!"
