Rainmakers Yandoit cd cover

Here is our new album released in Nov 2010. It's a diverse collection of songs all relating in some way to Christmas in contemporary Australia. A few old traditional carols that you already know, as well as a couple of lesser known ones. A few contemporary folk songs yearning for peace in our world as well as a new one from Jane that wraps up why we enjoy singing the year to an end. Guaranteed to contain no references to reindeers, snow or Santa.

We recorded the album with the wonderful Micky Levis with additional recording at home and by Maggie in Ireland. We also got a beautiful fiddle solo from the gorgeous Louisa Wise in Margaret River.

A wonderful selection of songs exploring our complex responses to the challenges thrown at us at Christmas.
