It's catch up time. This Invisible Folk Club radio show went out live to four community stations across England.
Twelfth Night has been and gone. A Wassail song is unlike other
Christmas music, it does not celebrate the nativity, it celebrates
the New Year. 'Wassail' is an olde English word for a toast similar
to 'Good Health'
Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand'ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.
Nothing in the broad church of folk related music is off limits, there's many shades of folk, ours is an eclectic mix.
