A Christmas Special – Simon & Hilary’s Winter Warmer

Simon Mayor & Hilary James (Mandolinquents for larger venues)

A winter’s romp of snow-capped seasonal songs and mandolin and fiddle instrumentals hot enough to cook a turkey. New takes on some old favourites alongside some beautiful French carols, poignant traditional songs, original settings of seasonal poems and the silliest of sing-alongs.
