Christmas in St. Paul by Last Train Home (click to listen)
Here's a modern Christmas set. I'll probably be taking the family to see Last Train Home at the Iota club in Arlington on Sunday afternoon so I had to include one of theirs. It helps that its a very nice song. Eric Brace of Last Train Home was the very first person to post a comment on my blog. Naturally I've been a HUGE fan ever since. In fact, go to their site, Last Train Home, and order a cd or their dvd. They will be appearing in Arlington this weekend and at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage Dec. 30 at 6 PM. That one is free so if you like them, go see them. Also, if you've got kids, go to Trout Fishing In America for music that both of you will love.
