Mike Biggar’s much-loved,
multi-award winning Christmas album 'THE SEASON' is a compelling combination of heartfelt
original holiday & freshly arranged Christmas
standards, all packaged in his
signature soulful, bluesy roots
style. THE SEASON has
received both a MUSIC NB & EAST COAST MUSIC AWARD as ‘Gospel Recording of the Year’ & enjoyed great affection from listeners.
'THE SEASON' was born of Biggar's deep desire to create an album that reflected his own upbringing in gospel music. Biggar’s soulful interpretations of well-traveled Christmas spirituals such as ‘O Holy Night’ and ‘The First Noel’ mingle together well with lesser known hymns of the season such as ‘Angels From The Realms of Glory’ & his haunting rendition of ‘Angels We Have Heard On High’. His bluesy, raucous offering of the soulful ‘Go Tell It On The Mountain’ is widely cited as a favourite version by fans & critics alike.
All told THE SEASON intimates a deeply personal & honest connection to the music of Christmas for Biggar while offering a delightful listening experience & accessibility to any listener.
It has become a regular part of CBC and other local radio programming, as have Biggar’s live Christmas music shows
that never fail to warm hearts, inspire & reiterate the beauty, power and charm of the holiday season. Holiday tour booking for Nov. & Dec. 2017 is currently ongoing.
