Play show or right-click to download Show 18 - The Xmas Show !

Well, as you can see from these pictures taken on Saturday at my parent's house that we're in the mood already !! Apologies for my dishevelled look - colds give me quite bad outbreaks of plukes (a Scottish word which I'd like you to look up as an educational challenge) so I tend to avoid shaving until things have cleared up. And boy, do I have the most pathetically weedy, patchy excuse for a beard ! You'd think at my age I'd manage more than that pathetic thatch... The worst of my cold is over, though as you'll hear my voice is still sounding slightly different from it's normal state.

Hoping that you're all gearing up for a fun time over the festive season, I've lined up a selection of serious and not-so-serious tracks to take you up to the 25th. Hope you enjoy them ! This isn't the usual Three From Leith - there are more than three tracks - but I'm in the holiday spirit and I just went for a fun mix. Peace, happiness and best wishes to you all.

Fabulous Show...really a Christmas gift.
Merry Christmas Grant and Family.

A special hello to Freddy whose music continues to surprise and enthrall.

A Happy Christmas from Rhode Island to all!

Grant! That was the best Christmas show ever! I especially enjoyed your duet with Jasna. And you two look adorable in your santa hats. :)

A very fun show, great music as usual. Have very happy holidays!


Hi Grant and Jasna

I enjoyed that, lots of fun coming into work extra early on December 23rd. I hope Jasna was safely in bed before you played that last song.

Merry Christmas to you both.
