Joy The World (3:00)
A joyful unique approach to the classic with acoustic guitars and nylon string harmony guitar.
Angels We Have Heard On High(3:00)
These angel voices resonate from acoustic guitars with a banjo harmony.
O Holy Night (3:43)
My friend Kym Warner from The Greencards was kind enough to add his lead mandolin and the 8 string bouzouki part that you hear on the right. The rain was recorded outside the studio on the day I recorded my guitars.
In The Bleak Midwinter (3:53)
The beautiful Gustav Holst melody played on our 7 foot Baldwin piano, filled out with a dreamy pad, accordion solo and a little guitar.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (2:58)
Kenny Putnam is actually the musician I've spent the most hours onstage with in my career. His fiddle is perfect here, and he recorded it in his home studio in Rapid City, SD.
O Tannenbaum (3:02)
I love David Carroll’s upright bass on this track. This is my nod to the Vince Guaraldi Christmas album we all know and love. I played the lead on a Godin nylon string guitar, added piano, bongos and snare drum.
Good King Wenceslaus / I Saw Three Ships (3:09)
I found a way to give this a bit of an Irish lilt which led me naturally into "I Saw Three Ships" and a medley was born. I added my Regal dobro to the mix and on the left you'll hear a dulcimer.
Deck The Halls (2:17
I was bound and determined to have one song on solo guitar, and this is it. It's my tiny Collings single O guitar I bought from Jerry Jeff, tuned to a double-drop C.
Hark The Herald Angels Sing (3:01)
I enjoyed the syncopation on the rhythm guitar, and then matched it on the lead. My Giulietti accordion ties it all together.
A slightly funky approach augmented with baritone guitar and bongo drums.
Silent Night (2:56)
My wife Christine makes records in French and English called Texafrance...it was a no brainer to have her close out my record with the only vocals. Thanks, honey, and Merry Christmas.
