Cockman Family Christmas CDs and DVDs

Greetings from the Cockman Family. We hope all is well and you are looking forward to winter. Along with the colder weather come thoughts of being indoors listening to Christmas music.

We have two DVDs that are uplifting with songs of the season. “Appalachian Christmas, Live at Lake Junaluska” was filmed live last December at Lake Junaluska’s Appalachian Christmas program. It is about 90 minutes in length. It features the entire family all the way down to the newest member who was only 2 months old at that time.

We will be returning to Lake Junaluska this December 13th at 2:00 pm. For tickets or a weekend package information, visit the Lake Junaska Conference Center.

The other DVD was professionally filmed by UNC-TV in their studio at Durham, NC. It is 60 minutes in length. It was released in 2003 and shown throughout North Carolina on UNC-TV and Nationally on American Broadcast Stations for several years. It is a home setting with all the family gathered around the living room singing traditional and original Christmas songs. Its title is, “A Cockman Family Christmas, Maker of the Stars.”

Our Christmas CD is the sound track for the DVD with all the same songs. Visit our recordings page to place an order!
