Mostly Autumn - "Spirits Of Christmas Past" {UK} [2005] (Prog Folk)

Mostly Autumn are Bryan Josh (electric guitar, vocals, 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars, e-bow), Heather Findlay (vocals, tombourine, 6 string acoustic guitar), Iain Jennings (keyboards, vocals), Liam Davison (electric guitar, vocals, 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars), Bob Faulds (violins), Stuart Carver (bass guitar), Kev Gibbons (low whistle, high whistle) and Allan Scott (drums). Also Angela Goldthorpe, Jonathan Blackmore and Andy Smith.

A UK band influenced by 70's UK Progressive Bands with a Folk slant. It's nice to hear a NON Pop Christmas sound.

1 Spirits of Christmas Past
2 Winter is King
3 Merry Christmas Everybody
4 Fairytale Of New York
5 Silent Night

Spirits of Christmas Past and Winter Is King are ok songs in their own right. It's nice to hear an alternative version of Fairytale In New York, look out for the added part at the end of Silent Night.

Troy Donockley plays low whistle, bouzouki and tofran on 'Winter is King'

And YES - Merry Christmas Everybody IS a cover of the Slade song.

So Merry Christmas Everybody!

Heather Findlay contributed to Arjen Lucassen's Ayreon project on The Human Equation album in 2004, singing the part of Love.
