Hearing everyone on the calendar is such a wonderful gift at this time of year, but today seeing John Henry again and playing quite beautifully on one of his dulcimers was the greatest gift of all and cheered me enormously. Thanks all and Merry Christmas.

I've been so busy at work that I've been unable to check out the Musical Advent Calendar each day, but that means what a treat I've had today, the first day of our holiday break, when I could just sit back and enjoy almost two dozen delightful tunes.  So much dulcimer love, so much wonderful sharing of music from around the world.

I do want to point out the wonderful tone Mary Ellen Lousberry gets out of her dulcimer in #7. That's the sweetest amplified dulcimer sound I think I've ever heard. Just delightful.  Soft and round and clear.

Thanks to all the performers and to Ariane for donating her time to make this happen.  What a treat!flowerheartjoyjoy

Erin Mae Lewis's close-up play of four equidistant strings on I Wonder as I Wander was fascinating to see behind door #21.  

And O Tannenbaum behind door #22, appropriately, comes from musicians in Germany.
