Many of the songs on this recording were learned from the wonderful CD "American Folk Songs For Christmas," recorded by Mike, Peggy, and Penny Seeger, and members of their families, and from the book of the same name by their mother Ruth Crawford Seeger.

"On A Winter’s Night from John Reischman and the Jaybirds is the most refreshing Christmas collection I’ve heard in a long time. It collects eight songs of the season that are not the same old, same old. These aren’t just Christmas tunes played in a bluegrass style. They are folk songs on the subject of Christmas. From the lead-off “I Heard From Heaven Today” to the closing song, each tune resonates with a joy and spirit of the holiday."
