Magical Mystery Yule
(A Fab Christmas)
‘Twas the night before Christmas, but the spirit of Yule
Was not what it should be in olde Liverpool.
The stockings, all hung by the warm chimney grate,
Were still sadly empty. For Santa…was late.
Yes, midnight had come and midnight had fled.
The children were lying awake in their beds,
Unable to sleep and beginning to fear
That Christmas was really not coming that year,
You might not notice them a first glance, but check out the boots on the ladies of VOCO. More than just a fashion statement, the boots are actually an important part of their act! The wide variety of music they perform, from original folk to traditional ballads, make VOCO a little hard to categorize. One thing that makes them stand out above and beyond their gorgeous harmonies is their body percussion sets. And that's where the boots come in - slapping their ankles is a lot louder (and probably less painful) with boots!
Join me Tuesday from 9-10 am for lots of lovely music of the Lyrical Venus type, and for an interview with VOCO's arranger/composer Moira Smiley!
