SONG OF THE SEASON:
The Jolly Preacher-man This is a takeoff on the traditional Irish Beggarman song. About a year ago, my perverse pastoral humor got this funny picture stuck in my mind of substituting a preacher raising his voice in a revival tent to wake up a sleepy audience instead of the mendicant in the original song who spent the night in a barn and frightened the woman of the house by saying "Boo" when she arrived for her morning chores... and it just went downhill from there. This recording was made live in our living room, with Paula at the mixing board and most of the rest of our family playing instruments and singing. It was a treat to have our oldest son Josh temporarily back at home with us for this recording, despite his disparaging comment about my scat singing
