Katherine Wheatley, Tannis Slimmon and Jude Vadala Team Up For An Angelic Holiday CD

Boreal is an amazing, trio that wield some heavenly harmonies to celebrate the season.  Their debut is an  angelic holiday CD, Winter's Welcome.  Each one is a world-class artist in her own right but together, they create something spectacular.

Composed of Guelph's Tannis Slimmon and Jude Vadala with Katherine Wheatley from Toronto, these ladies can really create a sense of warmth and wonder.  Listening to these tracks will bring out the magic of the season in anyone.

Filled mainly with sensational, original tracks, this CD also has a few classics such as Carol of the Bells, I'll Be Home for Christmas and Silent Night.  Whether old or new, these songs have a radience that will raise your spirits.

This wonderful trio doesn't play often so you may want to pick up a copy of the disc at their online store or download it through cdbaby.
