Ever since her platinum album, “A Guitar for Christmas,” Boyd’s music has been part of the holidays. A Winter Fantasyis a one-hour concert film that interweaves beloved traditional pieces, such as “Silent Night” and “The Huron Carol,” with Boyd’s own original material and the ethereal orchestrations of Peter Bond. Dolson accompanies Boyd on guitar and vocals as well as giving soaring operatic vocal renditions of “O Holy Night” and Boyd’s own epic “Aurora Borealis,” a tribute to the beauty of the northern lights.
Recorded in historic Richmond Hill United Church in December 2017, A Winter Fantasy also features special guest, Grammy nominated flautist Ron Korb, as well as the Chancel Choir of Richmond Hill. Korb adds his acclaimed playing on two pieces, and The Chancel choir joins along with the exuberant Caribbean rhythms of “Christmas Dreams” to close out this special concert.
