A Christmas Folk Classic in a Fresh New (2011) Digital Mix

The Stone Table String Band is me and a few of my like-minded musician friends, who seek out meaningful songs both new and old and present them with a fresh, folk-rock twist. From 1980 to 1993, the “band” was a recording configuration of my multi-tracked vocals and instrumentals, assisted by Bruce Adams on bass, and occasionally joined by my wife Debbie adding vocals. We produced three hour-long cassettes of music during those years, and gave them out as Christmas gifts.  Now the best of those tracks have been digitally re-mastered and released on CD for the first time, as “Birthday Music” (an album of Christmas songs) and its companion album called “If Not For Love/Old Tracks” available here.

The cover of “Birthday Music” shows Tim and Debbie’s daughter Kirstin in 1983, with a 2007 photo of Sitka spruce as background.
