Album Notes
Christmas carols harken back to joys and mysteries of childhood, the core of Christianity, and a spirituality that transcends religion (aye, 'tis music). I recorded my singing of "Joy to the World" when I was 3 years old before the advent of tape recorders and, after an hiatus of 54 years , recorded my first CD using Christmas carols.

I have busked playing Christmas carols for years and provide here most of the tunes that are not restricted by copyright, the limited scale of the pipes, and my musical sensibilities which have come to my attention from my audience or as a listener. Some of these tunes are slow and haunting, resonating with a soft snowfall, while others are sprightly and danceable. Many of the tunes are played in sets because they speak to me to be so played.

"Christmas I' Da Morning" is a uniquely Scotch tune, from the Shetland Islands that I learned only through being a Celtic musician.

"Traditional Czech Carol" was freely transcribed and incorporated into the song "Carol of the Drum" by Katherine Kennicott Davis and later popularized in the song "The Little Drummer Boy".

Merry Christmas and Namaste!
