My friend Nancy Flynn emailed me some Christmas lyrics a couple years ago. We both love JRR Tolkien, The Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings. The lyrics were inspired by A Long Expected Party, a hobbit gathering that happens every few years in Central Kentucky. It's a magical place and the lyrics do it justice. After returning from this year's ALEP and recording the song, I realized the song needed one of our famed Hobbit Choirs to join me the chorus. My fellow ALEPers were up to the challenge and recorded the beautiful voices you will hear in this recording.
As with all of these Christmas songs, this one will be on my Celtic Christmas Greeting Cards and CD. I'm currently raising money on Kickstarter to pay for the album and cards. Please show your support and make a pledge at http://celticmusic.org/CelticChristmasGreetingCards .
