This year marks the I-don’t-know-how-many-th that I will have the good fortune to sing with the Old St. Mary’s Cathedral Choir for Christmas Eve carols and Midnight Mass. In the darkest hours of winter it doesn’t get better than singing old songs with old friends.

And I have some happy things to look forward to in the new year! On Feb 5 Russ Pollock and I will be back at the Octopus Literary Salon doing traditional songs and sharing the stage with Wilson Wong and the Dudes. Then on Feb 24 I’ll be the feature at the Fireside Lounge open mic.

In the meantime, my obsession with this version of The Wexford Carol will only get more acute.
