Christmas at Rivenmaster’s Place 2012

Christmas 2012

This is our fourth Christmas here at Rivenmaster’s Place, and with each passing year we are blessed with an even greater abundance of new talented youngsters from all over the world.  This year has been no exception and without question has been our biggest and most successful year yet!  I want to thank each and every artist, their families, managers and promoters for their contributions to this site. Without them, Rivenmaster’s Place would not exist.  We also would like to take this time to wish each and every one a Merry Christmas.  Of course to you our readers and subscribers we wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and thank you for your continued support and gifts to this site which keep us going year after year!

Last year we brought you on a journey of Christmas’s Past, Present and Future.  This Christmas we are pleased to present you with some extraordinary Christmas videos from some of our talented featured artists.  To conserve space , we have linked each ‘Song Title’  and ‘artists photo’ to their New Christmas Video.  After viewing each video, please be sure to visit their websites and subscribe to their social media sites.
