Coffeehouse Dec. 18/07

Last Tuesday evening was a coffee house in support of Ramesh Ferris's Cycle to Walk Campaign (re. Polio). The Transparencies had considered performing, but would have been drummerless, leaving only the musicians.

It turned out to be a different "quiet" little affair and so my (sort of) planned solo set turned out quite different, partly because of the presence of St. Michael's Junior Choir, their family and priest.

Not that I'd been planning on swearing; it's just that I decided to go in a completely Christmas/Winter direction, rather than Lost Dogs, U2, Dylan, Cohen direction.

FWIW my set lists (songs in approx. order as best I remember it).

Jingle Bells
Happy Xmas/War is Over

Matty: "Maranda and friends need to sing now." (I accompanied them on a few Christmas songs.)

Then solo again:

Mary's Boy Child
Jingle Bell Rock
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
White Christmas
Little Drummer Boy
All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth
The Christmas Song (Chestnuts....)
Go Tell It On the Mountain
The Coventry Carol
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Private Table Concert for Thomas & Daniel Abthorpe and friend, Riley:

Frosty the Snowman
O Holy Night

Review: "The Leafs suck!" Thomas Abthorpe
