A Christmas carol, of sorts

Wednesday, 25 December, 2013

For the (birth)day that’s in it, here’s Jesus by Amos Lee. Unexpectedly, the song became a daily listen in summer when illness intervened and inspiration was needed. “Oh Jesus, can you help me now?” In the end, help arrived and it was provided by some wonderful people. Happy Christmas to them and to every reader of Rainy Day!

This recording, by the way, was made in 2011 as part of the fifth Transatlantic Sessions episode, when Lee was joined by Aly Bain, Kathleen MacInnes, Donal Lunny, Sarah Jarosz, Jerry Douglas, Nollaig Casey and Michael McGoldrick, who supplies some truly beautiful accompaniment here on the uilleann pipes.
