dfbm #109 - Christmas Morning Raga Pt. 22
Welcome to the Christmas season with festive guitar solis, two banjo pieces and one fiddle tune.
There is quite a gap between the last mixes and reviews here on this site and this fresh new holiday mix. I would love to talk about what happened, but it's just as half as important compared to what many other people experienced, like loss of income or loved ones.
I could bemoan that Christmas here where I live is always white and this year it's just a bit frost in the morning and during the day sunshine and bright blue sky or it's just gray.
Anyways - for 1,5 hours you can dive into a steel-string solo-guitarscape that includes the obligatory Fahey Christmas tunes, an imaginary tour through Winter Wonderland and cozy solo guitar, home-alone at Christmas-Eve extravaganza (more like intravaganza).
And just shortly after I finished up this mix, Italian blues scholar and steel string guitarist Roberto Menabò sent me a rendition of "Silent Night" - so here it is:
I hope you enjoy this mix and I hope you still like the format (zip, mixcloud stream), because I'm not going to deal with that one big streaming service. Buy your music on bandcamp write an email to artists and argue with people that getting the vaccine when possible and wearing that mask when needed is kind of important, so we can go to concerts again and doing all that stuff that is missing right now.
As always, you can support DFBM by buying a t-shirt and share the mixes. Thank you for listening.
