Bluegrass pop

On stage, the Stringdusters are capable of transforming any traditional hillbilly tune into a Grateful Dead-style jam session, and turning even the hippest pop song into a bluegrass tune. In this Silver Sky: Deluxe Edition, you'll hear extra tracks from the original Silver Sky album, released in March, including "He's Gone," "Don't Mean Nothin'," and their remake of the early Police tune "Walking on the Moon." And don't be surprised if you find yourself checking their tour schedule to hear these five young virtuosos from Charlottesville, Va., give it their all.

One nation under God

Working for Religious Freedom, a CBS Interfaith Special airing Dec. 9, explores what religious freedom means in the most religiously diverse country in the world. The program examines discrimination of religious minorities, Islamophobia in the United States, and other issues facing religious groups in the US.

Just in time for more gifting with a nod to the past, San Diego-based Canterbury Classics is releasing its line of elegantly bound and packaged – but reasonably priced – timeless works of literature. Titles include Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" and "Pride and Prejudice," Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women" – with more titles to come.
