Songs:Illinois Does Christmas (Hayes Carll, Danny Barnes, Steve Poltz, Antje Duvekot, Laura Marling, Felice Brothers, Frontier Ruckus, Robert Earl Keen…you know the drill)

Hey There,

Merry Christmas. It’s that time again, time to spread a little holiday cheer (I’m even getting requests for this mix). Here’s my (anti) Christmas mix. A bunch of these songs are borderline sacrilegious and others are only just a little bitter (and who can blame them this time of year). There are some real gems in here though and I hope you enjoy them with your family sitting around the fire while decorating your tree.

Cheers,
Craig

P.S. I’ll usually update this mix as new songs come in.

P.P.S. I know I should really have a link to a zip file but I don’t have the energy to do it. If you want to help and throw that together email me the link at cbonnell@gmail.com.
