    - Grammy winner, Grammy nominee, mother, activist Paula Cole has released seven solo albums of original songs, spanning a 20+ year career. Cole has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton, Herbie Hancock to Emmylou Harris; Amy Lee of Evanescence to Burt Bacharach. Her compositions have been covered by a diverse range of artists (Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, Katherine McPhee, JoJo, i.e.) and she has sold approximately 3 million albums. From the small town of Rockport, Massachusetts, Paula was raised in a musical family (her father Jim Cole was a professional bass player) with whom she and her daughter Sky remain close. As the first woman in history to solely produce and receive the best Producer Grammy nomination for her work, “This Fire”, Cole has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit.

    This year Paula is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of This Fire, the double-platinum album, released on Warner Bros Records in 1996, her sophomore effort, entirely self-produced. It garnered two breakout Billboard charting hits “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” and “I Don’t Want to Wait,” This Fire was nominated for seven awards at the 40th Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, Best Pop Album, “Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?” for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Cole was also nominated for Producer of the Year (the first woman in Grammy history to be solely nominated as Best Producer) and won the Grammy award for Best New Artist. She will be performing “This Fire” in its entirety this year at select performances.

    - Wintery Songs in Eleventy Part Harmony is a loose collaboration of Boston-based musicians (with some notable Canadian exceptions) organized by veteran singer/songwriter Jennifer Kimball, who celebrate the holiday season with an annual performance of sacred, secular and pop music at Club Passim in Cambridge. Wielding fiddles, cellos, ukes, guitars and glockenspiels, this ensemble re-envisions the sounds of the season by reharmonizing classic songs, reinterpreting pop tunes, composing new songs for the season and bringing unknown pop gems to the lexicon of holiday-ish music.

    From Sinatra to Tchaikovsky, Isaac Watts to Ana Egge, this beautifully eclectic mix of sacred and secular music inspires a reinvention of the holiday experience; one where minor keys are just as familiar as major and the season's darkness as deep as it's festive lights are welcoming.

    - Boxing Day is December 26, the day after Christmas, and is celebrated in Great Britain and in most areas settled by the English (the U.S. is the major exception), including Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

    Some historians say the holiday developed because servants were required to work on Christmas Day, but took the following day off. As servants prepared to leave to visit their families, their employers would present them with gift boxes.
