Great playing, Wolf.  Enjoyed it very much.  Deep mid-winter was particularly appreciated.  Gustaf Holst's tune "Cranham" was named after the village where he lived, in Midwinter Cottage.  I can see the Cranham woods from my balcony, and often I drive through them, but your fine playing has inspired me to do something different.  Next time I will take my concertina, stop in the woods, and play some of his tunes.

 

Happy Christmas.    Les Branchett

Must have been a pretty bleak place.

Thanks a lot Les! I'm very glad you like the tunes as played here, and I love the notion of your playing Holst tunes in the woods - it's these things that make sharing the music so worthwhile to me!

Have a happy Christmas yourself - Wolf

I, too, wish everyone a Merry Christmas and God Jul (Good Yule).

 

And I guess it's time to revive this old favorite;) :ph34r: :D
