Every year during the Holiday Season, I vow to learn Christmas songs and carols to play for the next year.  With my legendary, remarkable consistency I am now in my 70th year of making that goal and failing to meet it.  There is something to be said for an error perfect track record.

I was asked to record some songs for a play a few years back. I was told the story was about a kid who played harmonica through out the performance and they wanted a soundtrack to play during the show. I was asked in April. Never heard anything from the producer until mid November. It was a Christmas theme, they wanted me to record Christmas songs, within a week! What a struggle, but I managed it. Played a lot of first position harmonica on diatonic and chromatic. Our uke group plays at the Blind School christmas tree sale every year, we all struggle a bit. Half are fairly easy, many of the others are not. Danny (who looks like and plays Santa) likes to play more upbeat tunes, like Santa Baby, Bill Monroes' Christmas Time is Coming, Bob Dylans' Must be Christmas, and other less traditional tunes. I play harp on Even Santa Gets the Blues.
