Singer-songwriter Ron Kalmakoff’s fans asked for years if he would ever consider releasing a full Christmas album. This holiday season they are in luck, as his first ever Christmas single, “Christmas Once Again,” has arrived.
Before migrating to the west coast of Canada, Ron spent his childhood roaming the prairies of Canora, SK, an experience he captures in an earlier song of his entitled “Where the Willows Bend.”
On “Christmas Once Again,” he calls upon that same wistfulness, changing the lyrics of “Where the Willows Bend,” and inviting listeners back to that familiar special place in Canora- this time to stay for the holidays.
“Christmas traditions are very meaningful to me, and ones that have been passed on from different generations are important,” Ron said, adding that he hopes his new Christmas song will become a tradition. “It’s all been done with love, and I hope that what I bring to each holiday season, through this song, will be remembered as well.”
As a nod to his fans who encouraged the new track, he added, “At least I can now say that I have my very own Christmas song, and I hope followers who enjoy it will put it on repeat for holidays seasons ahead.”
