First off this is a year round website, second off you'll, of course recognise all of the above musicians, they've all appeared in one version or another of The Albion Band(s), and third off.......well, welcome to a website that has been along time in coming. The Albion Christmas Band has been together for awhile now, with four very wonderful records under their collective belts and alot of incredible and fun gigs to go along with them, and we thought we'd add our own few pence worth to the overall picture. You'll find lyrics to the songs, observations of the season, including, at the very end, Charles Dickens' absolutely charming short story, A Christmas Tree, of which, somewhere about is a recording of Ashley Hutchings reading from the said story.
The Albion Christmas Band will be on tour again in December. The group features the combined talents of Ashley Hutchings, Kellie While, Simon Care and Simon Nicol. It is the perfect way to start your Christmas, with festive songs, carols, music and humorous asides. Make sure you book your tickets early as the Albion Christmas Band tour has sold out every year
Albionchronicles would like to send out massive thanks to Ashley Hutchings and Talking Elephant Records for recognising this website (we think of ourselves, now, as sort of unofficially official) and for providing a link to this site from the Talking Elephant Records website. Thanks for all the music, Ashley, it's been a wonderful forty some-odd years, and to Simon and Fiona Care for all their hard work in making The Albion Christmas Band available for your listening and dancing pleasure.
A MERRY ALBION CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL !
