Windermere Valley Musicians Who Care was formed in the spring of 2013 with the concept of a Valley Christmas Album as the first project. Profits from this CD are dedicated to the Food Bank and Local Musical Community. The founding members were Ben Cameron, Bruce Childs, Bill Cropper, Kurt Reichel, Fraser Smith and Mike Smith.

Initial funding was done with online crowdfunding (Indiegogo),  Musicians Scholarship Fund (Dennis LaRochelle) and a grant from the Windermere Valley Foundation. CV Arts also assisted us in many areas.

The Windermere Valley is fortunate to have many fine musicians who have volunteered their time and talent to produce this album. Musicians of all ages contributed in making this eclectic mix of traditional and original Christmas music.

Merry Christmas from Windermere Valley Musicians Who Care!
