Tunes and Tales 

State of the Arts

Published December 22, 2010 at 11:50 a.m.

Speaking of stocking stuffers, Vermont Stage Company is not to be left out. Its popular theatrical/musical show Winter Tales is now on CD. It’s a shortie with just six tracks, but the contributions from Vermont singer-songwriters Pete Sutherland and Patti Casey and VSC artistic director Mark Nash warrant spinning every year, along with the Bing Crosby, Gregorian chants or whatever seasonal soundtrack fires your yule log. Those with alternative holiday traditions might particularly like Nash’s contribution to Winter Tales, “Growing Up Pagan.”

For a preview of the disc, check out Casey’s humorous sendup of all things organic, hybrid, solar and PC in “Green Solstice” — sung to the melody of “White Christmas” — at
