Both of these tunes are Christmas related. The second, in an obvious way, and the first not so much: The tune sometimes goes by other names, but it is often called "Christmas Eve." The concertina player is Brenda Castles. She is currently touring the Eastern US, and this summer she taught concertina at Catskills Irish Arts Week. She is a great player, and her first CD is a thing of beauty. If you like this clip, you'll love the CD, "Indeedin You Needn't Bother." You can get it on Itunes among other places.

The "Deck the Halls" tune is Welsh, 'Nos Galan', first published in 1794 although it is probably older.

Thanks for all this input: so much more that meets the eye!

 

Thank you Jim for pointing out the CD. I sampled it, and I agree,

it is a thing of beauty. I ordered the CD.
