Volume 12 was released as part of an event at the Greysolon Plaza Ballroom in Duluth Thursday night. The release event featured performances from local artists who appear on the album. The talented group consists of a variety of artists ranging from high school choirs to singer/songwriters.

The event and album are made possible by the Bluebird Foundation in an effort to raise money for students in the performing arts and celebrate local artists. This year's volume is a 2 disc set combining Holiday favorites with originals. 

Bluebird Foundation's marketing director Austan Lundeen said, "the first CD has more of your traditional songs, and then it goes off into a second CD where you’re going to have more variety with originals.”

The event also included a silent auction. All of the proceeds from the volume and the auction will go toward performing arts grants and scholarships for students at area high schools.

Local singer Rickey Lee Biggs has been featured on the album for the last 3 years. He said, “this is something I like to do to support the next generation of musicians. It’s really important that we give them as much support as we can.”

Christmas by the Lake-Volume 12 will be available for $15 at a number of locations in the Duluth area. Locations include Super One Foods, Gary Milk House, Big Daddy's Burgers, Schmitt Music in the Miller Hill Mall, Benna Ford Roush in Superior, Engwall Florist & Gifts in Hermantown, and Korner Store in Hermantown.
