FFS Advent Calendar Door 10 | Bellowhead – Christmas Bells

When it comes to Christmas folk music, this is about as Christmassy and as folky as it gets. Jon Boden explains: “‘Christmas Bells’ is based on the mummers play ‘Christmas: his Pageant Play, or Mysterie of St George’ written down by a Mr. H Slight and published in 1842. It seems perfect for Bellowhead, linking Father Christmas with the tale of St George & the Dragon.” See what we mean?
