The Holidays are upon us! I wish I could be with you around the table, or the fire, or the candles or the tree. But since I can’t, below are ways we CAN be together: my holiday collection of blogposts and some special offers for Harp players…

Each year I reach into the carefully packed boxes, rediscover these posts that share music, or drawings, or ideas and I think … “Ahh, I remember THAT one”… OR… “THIS one is my favorite!” Some are older, others newer.

Starting with a musical greeting from a home-make Christmas Grotto, to a Holiday Round you can sing with your family. From the story of how I learned to spell Chanuka, to my favorite Holiday Illustrations by Ellen Lebow, where a Harp-Lady is always in cahoots with Santa.

Each is like an ornament on the virtual tree WE share: you and I. And I love sharing them with you. 

I even discovered downloadable gift-wrap with Santa-and-the-Harp-Lady, a Free download of “O Tannenbaum” from my Holiday album, “The Gift,” and the story of an unusual gift-giving tradition.

They’re all in the blog posts listed below. I hope you enjoy them!


I love clicking through this list every year. I hope you have fun reading, listening, downloading, singing …
