Advent Calendar of Non-Overplayed Christmas Songs: XI. The Bitter Withy

This English folk band Kerfuffle's "Midwinter album" Lighten the Dark is amazing, my favorite new discovery in this non-overplayed Christmas music project. Here's them playing The Bitter Withy live:

I love the "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" in that funky mode in the middle (technically overplayed, it's true.) It seems Kerfuffle has broken up & the sexy accordion player has joined the girly band Lady Maisery. Here's the spotify link for their awesome take on I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In, & here's The Bitter Withy from Lighten the Dark. Here's our lengthy spotify mix Infinite Non-Overplayed Christmas Playlist (listen on Random!)
