Bluegrass Christmas music
( Update! - I wrote this post last year and thought I would bump it! It is hard to believe that today is October 30th already - Christmas will be here before you know it! I admit that I have already been enjoying listening to Christmas music...)
I tuned the radio to my favorite station today and they have already started playing Christmas music 24/7 and it's not even Thanksgiving yet!
But, that is okay - I enjoy Christmas music and especially bluegrass Christmas songs. I grew up listening to the sounds of bluegrass and country music and during the holidays, the old songs bring back pleasant memories of my Mom and Dad, and "days of yore"!
I have discovered that with the help of MP3 downloads, I (and we!) can make our own playlist of Christmas favorites! I love that - you can choose just the songs you want instead of buying the whole album (that's an older folks version of CDs if any of you younger people are reading this!) and so you can save money by getting exactly what you want, or you can go completely overboard and buy a whole CD! Nice!
These are some of my favorite bluegrass Christmas songs and they are available for download at Amazon.

Old Fashioned Christmas by Jimmy Martin
It's Christmas Time by The Louvin Brothers
Christmas Time Back Home by The Country Gentlemen
Light Of The Stable by Emmylou Harris
This song I can't decide which version I like better - there is a version by Ralph Stanley that is wonderful, but the version by Larry Sparks is great, too! You decide! -
Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem by Ralph Stanley
Local music / Armadillo Bazaar
If you want to see some local music for cheap ($2-4), hit the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar, which starts Thursday, Dec. 12. If you don't want to go to the bazaar but just want to check out some local performers, click on the link below and then click on the name of the artist--you will be linked to the artist's Web site and can see where the artist is performing next.
Not all the music acts at the bazaar are local, but many are ... if you like bluegrass, I definitely recommend the South Austin Jug Band. They are great musicians and really fun
