Christmas greetings

Thanks to Arnie and Sharon Loughrin in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, for Christmas greetings; Sharon adds:

I'm attaching a wee link with a Christmas tune from Monday night's house concert.* We had Aaron [Jonah Lewis] for an extra couple of nights and the Broken String Band were kind enough to let him join their Wednesday night session in Balloo House; also fitted in a trip to the Folk Park and a drive through the Sperrins.

* At the Red Room, where the Kennedy, Lewis, Hicks Trio played on 19 December. More photos and videos from the evening can be seen on the Red Room Facebook page and on Sharon's YouTube channel.

You can also hear a six-minute medley of Christmas tunes played solo by the unique Béla Fleck in this post on Bluegrass Today. Don't forget that Fleck and the original Flecktones will be in concert at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, on 17 January 2012. Tickets can be booked online.

Thanks also for Christmas greetings from John, Monika and Sean Bermingham at Croc an Oir, Mullinahone, Co. Tipperary, one of the most unique music venues in this country.
