MTS Management Group and Half Moon Records are pleased to announce the October 1st, 2021 release of Margaret Dorn & The Accidentals “A Cappella Holiday Classics.” The vocal-heavy collection includes an eclectic mix of 33 hymns, carols, and original songs, featuring award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, arranger and artist, Margaret Dorn. Dorn joins the equally celebrated vocal group, The Accidentals, for this holiday season’s must-have album.
Tracks include familiar holiday gems like “Frosty The Snowman,” “Jingle Bells,” “Joy To The World,” “Silent Night,” “The First Noel,” “Away In a Manger,” and many others, all done with a traditional vocal appeal.
“This album takes me back to a simpler time…a time of innocence,” says Michael Stover of MTS. “When you put this album on, it will bring back memories of classic Hollywood holiday movies, hot cocoa, white Christmases and family dinners with your folks. This one will definitely be on repeat this coming season.”
