The Christmas season begins for me on 9 December. It is going to be a difficult one this year for all sorts of reasons but I am kicking it off with a first listen to A Midwinter Miscellany by Ashley Hutchings, Becky Mills and Blair Dunlop.

It is quite lovely. A little more wistful and spare than the Albion Christmas Band albums but fans of the latter will definitely enjoy it. Very pleasing to have a new seasonal album to listen to.

I must give that a listen, if I can get a copy. I've been listening to my favourite seasonal album, Thea Gilmore's 'Strange Communion', which is one I return to again and again.

It is available from Talking Elephant and Amazon but the cheapest way is direct from Simon Care. Message from Simon below.

"UPDATE: We have now added the new release A Midwinter Miscellany from Ashley Hutchings, Becky Mills and Blair Dunlop. We are also SOLD OUT of Tradtional.
As we are not able to do The Albion Xmas Tour this year, we thought we would bring Ashleys famous merchandise stall to you on Facebook. If you would like to order any of our albums please send your order with payment through PayPal ... Paypal address is PayPal.me/albionxmas
All are priced at £10 each incl. pp or £25 for 3 .... Please send your address and album titles with the payment.
If you already have the albums, why not buy some for friends for Xmas !!! I will be doing a post office run on Monday, so order now to get in that delivery. Please buy from us rather than Amazon."

Or email Simon at simoncaremusic@icloud.com

I am working my way through my vast library of Christmas music in the run up to the season. This morning it is

Yo Ho Ho - Merry Xmas - The Slambovian Circus of Dreams
A Charlie Brown Christmas - Vince Guaraldi

Seasonal offering this morning for me have been all of John Fahey's wonderful Christmas albums. A quieter start to the day over coffee and working on my photo project. These are ones I especially look forward to hearing as the season gets closer.

One of my go to choices, a seasonal album that is timeless and simply wonderful.

Come Darkness Come Light - Mary Chapin Carpenter, probably my favourite festive album.
Angel's Christmas - Bulgarian Voices - Angelite, perfect for a Sunday morning.

Hey! Merry Christmas - The Mavericks
That Christmas Feeling - Glen Campbell
It's Christmas Man! - Brave Combo. This is the original source of Bob Dylan's Must Be Santa. I only managed to find a reasonably priced copy a year ago but it has become a real seasonal favourite.

My festive favourites are probably Magpie Lane's three Christmas albums along with Jethro Tull's and Dan Fogelberg's The First Christmas Morning.

I've been sent a link for a new digital Roger McGuinn album, called simply Merry Christmas. Haven't had a chance to listen yet. Not sure whether it's a set of new recordings or a compilation of Folk Den songs.

In an attempt to get some immunity from the coming onslaught of Merry Xmas. Mistletoe and Wine and the usual Xmas chart fodder I've headed to Upon a Winter's Night-Cara Dillon, Lighten the Dark-Kerfuffle and Strange Communion-Thea Gilmore. Not sure what dossage is required, probably three time a day for full protection
