    Brian Oberlin’s „Solo Christmas Swing“ has been the most played CD in my car during the last few months, so I think it is time to have a pause till march.

    Listening to Butch's Evergreen is an uplifting thing for me. Then I put on The Travelers with Butch,John R. and Robin Bullock. Good stuff.(check out "Birdland Bounce" a Reischman composition!)

    Learned a buch of tunes from Butch's instructionals when I was starting out on mandolin.

    Robin Bullock and Steve Baughman do an annual Christmas show every year in Macon,Ga. This year they are including a harp player,Sue Richards. It is put on by Joe Cullison of Acoustic Productions fame. Joe brings lots of great talent to perform at his get togethers.

    The only link for Evergreen that works is the SoundArt, unless you want to pay $28 on Amazon. Is there somewhere to get a digital version of Evergreen?

    Amazon: $9.99 CD, $8.99 MP3.

    https://www.amazon.com/Evergreen-Man...dp/B00LIEC3FW/

    This is a pretty old list. The music doesn't get old, but the links sometimes go awry or change or get served elsewhere. Not actively updating that information. And of course free on Spotify with an account.

    Thanks, Martin! Folks can listen to all the tunes for free (the new musician's business model) at all the usual places. I also have tons of physical copies left - FREE for any friends here at the Café. Just need postage (the set weighs over a pound). PM me through any of my 3 web sites. Best, g

    A worthy one that came to my attention last year but has been out since 2013 is Christmas Lights by Chris Newman and Maire Ní Chathasaigh. Plenty of mandolin, along with harp and guitar, fiddle and flute here and there, and bass and drums on some tracks giving it a slight Fairport/Steeleye kind of vibe. Lovely stuff. http://www.oldbridgemusic.com/christmaslights.htm

    And just in the interest of keeping info updated now that CDBaby has ceased operations as an online store, my Christmas Eve is Here CD is now available (as a download or a physical CD) from my Bandcamp page, https://robinbullock.bandcamp.com. Thx!
