Christmas Saturday Matinee – Fran Martin, Bradlee & Golder-Novick, The Bug Tussel Bluegrass Band, The Dukes of Dixieland & The Magic Piano

by

It’s not quite rockabilly, nor is it The Frankies (it’s apparently by someone named Fran Martin) but it’s awesome.

Scott Bradlee & Ben Golder-Novick.

The Bug Tussel Bluegrass Band‘s version is pretty good.

Jingle Bells” [...] was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. Even though it is now associated with the Christmas and holiday season, it was actually originally written to be sung for American Thanksgiving.b[Via Wiki]

Bells on horses were a wintertime safety measure to prevent collisions at crossroads – snow muffled the sound of horses’ hooves, and sleighs made little noise. The subsequent title is not about jingle bells, but is a command for the bells to jingle.

“Christmas Time In New Orleans” performed by The Dukes of Dixieland.

Now THAT is brilliant [via].

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll be back tomorrow for more festivities, frivolities y ¡Felicidades!
