I’ve probably mentioned it before, but Sweet Bells by Kate Rusby is a great christmas album. A great collection of carols, with a very Yorkshire flavour. Many of the tunes are traditional Yorkshire tunes as well as a few of the carols themselves. It probably doesn’t sound like a typical christmas album, but it’s very enjoyable. Perhaps my experience of it was boosted this year with the chance to go with Emily and see Christmas Kate in concert. It was a fantastic evening. The musicians were all top-notch and it was supremely enjoyable. One of the musicians used two different tenor guitars, which reminded me that I don’t have one of those! It’s not the christmas set, but there is a live DVD of Kate Rusby (in Leeds no less!) that is for sale.
As far as lights go, this is my style for christmas lights.
