Description: One of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene, John Kirkpatrick presents a heart-warming look at the timeless rituals and folklore of midwinter England. Mysterious and magical songs of wassailing, wren-hunting, stirring the fire and incessant feasting come dressed up in a glittering finery of toe-tapping tunes and cracking choruses. With a smattering of hilarious original songs and a sprinkling of carols both familiar and unfamiliar, all are stirred up with John’s usual panache and supported by his scintillating skill on squeezeboxes, creating the perfect recipe for a rattling good sing, guaranteed to keep the spirits cheery and the cold at bay. A master of the melodeon, button accordion and anglo concertina, John also has an enviable reputation as a fine singer and interpreter of English folk music.
