Herbie's Video Christmas Card

Before we get to the final Herbie Award for 2010, a short musical interlude.  Unfortunately we couldn't afford Take That ("What is Take That?" , " A popular beat combo M'Lud") so you'll have to put up with me on smallpipes and Kath on dulcimer playing a Spanish carol while you look at some pretty winter canal scenes.  This is our home made Christmas card to all our lovely boaty friends, blog readers, and fellow bloggers, especially those afloat that we don't have addresses to send real cards to.

Its all a bit Low Res and  Lo Fi, (Simon we need you).  I never tried this before, and the recording was on the internal mic of a handheld MP3 player after all of three minutes rehearsal.  So having suitably managed your expectations in a downward direction, have a click on the video thingy.

Awww, so lovely!

(and whilst I'd happily help out in the future, sounds fine to me)

How beautiful! Better than any card! Made me slightly damp-eyed (must be a snowflake or summat)...

Carrie, you wouldn't be the first person to say that my playing makes them want to weep:-)
