The CD is officially released and now available both in stores and digitally. The Homespun Christmas Collection is a huge fundraiser for Bluebird Foundation. This year the collection includes artists that live in the Northland, and artists from the Northland living elsewhere.

This year’s 2-CD set features Dane Schmidt who is now a Duluth transplant to Nashville, and Kim Olson who now calls Los Angeles his home.

A Christmas by the Lake XI benefits the Bluebird Foundation which is an advocate for regional kids in the arts. The Bluebird Foundation champions kids wanting to go into the arts and provides scholarships to take advantage of creative classes and majors.

This year it is available online click here, or at Super One, Big Daddies Burgers, Discover PC in Superior, Schmitt Music, and Lake It.
