Merry Christmas!


"Spare me your noisy singing— I will not listen to your musical instruments."
~Amos 5:23, ISV

May God richly bless you this Christmas with family, friends and music! Here is a video and a photo of my family and me at the Cockman Family's "Appalachian Christmas" concert at Lake Junaluska. The video features the piano playing of Lorien (age 13) and the fiddling of Arwen (age 14) and some bass playing and drumming by Mamma and Daddy.

The first song in this video is the girls' original arrangement of "Oh Come Emmanuel." The second song is their arrangement of "We Three Kings" and Leahy's "Mission."

Here is a hilarious video of my brother David's three children doing a surprise for Paw Paw live on stage. I can't believe they kept it a secret! I want to hear them doing some Abbott and Costello!
