Musical Advent Calendar 2019


This is the shareable link to the Musical Advent Calendar:

It will be posted here daily for you to open one door after the by day...until New Year's Eve and most probably in addition until Epiphany!


Short story:

September 19: My initial post asking if there will be participants for this international project who would like to record an Advent/Christmas tune (preferably with dulcimers).

September 21: What a great feedback! Already 15 musicians like to take part.

September 24: Wow! 27! Which means prolongation of the calendar until New Year's Eve.

September 27: Incredible! 32! So, an additional calendar from January 1-6, 2020 (Epiphany)?


Just for fun I posted a map from the USA where all the home states of the participants were colored in - impressing! All the other participants come from the UK and Germany.

I agree, Robin.  That dulcimer sounds amazing.
