Simple Winter Song At Midnight

Posted By on Wed, Dec 29, 2010 at 4:56 PM

For the Dec. 16 North Coast Journal's poetry feature, we published "Simple Winter Song (A Winter's Solstice Carol)," whose lyrics and music were composed by Fortuna resident Steve Brackenbury. In our print edition, we ran the lyrics. In our online edition, we ran the lyrics and the sheet music.

Now we present to you a live recording of the song. Brackenbury sent us a link to the recording, with this explanation:

Happy Winter Solstice...
