It’s here!!!! We’re over the moon to have this recording finished and in our hands. A collection of songs that were waiting for the right project to find a home. This was it, we think. There are songs that were written over 10 years ago and performed only once or twice over that time, like “Beautiful Scarecrow” and “Happy New Year”. Some not at all “Build the Fire” and “Myths and Miracles”. Not because we didn’t like them, but sometimes a song fades off our radar in favor of others we like to play more often. Many are more recent and written with this project in mind, like the title track “When They Fall” and “(That would do) Some Good”, “While it Lasted” and “Poor Old Me”.
If you don’t know how much we love this venue, you may have missed a few things. First of all, we remember the very first time we performed at Trinity House Theatre was when we opened for the Tangerine Trousers, fronted by our friends, John & CJ Milroy.
What is Horns for the Holidays? Horns for the Holidays is a grass roots organization founded in 1996 by Ken Kozora that connects used instruments with children who might not otherwise be able to afford an instrument of their own. How do we do this? YOUR HELP! Please donate your used musical instrument, encourage others to donate, and spread the word! Horns for the Holidays has been collecting under-used musical instruments from the community and giving back to the kids who need and want them for over 10 years.
Where? You ask? Well, the Chelsea Alehouse for one! and When? Well… how about this weekend?? The Alehouse will be celebrating a full weekend of music to kick off the Horns for the Holidays used musical instrument drive, with Creole Du Nord on Friday, Dec 2nd and we’ll be there on Saturday, Dec 3rd!
So dig out that trumpet collecting dust in the basement or old ukulele or penny whistle or…. ALL instruments are accepted!
