A Celtic Cup Christmas

I'll be bringing a team of talented friends dedicated to sharing the holiday spirit through music and merrymaking. Some of us might even wear hats.

Come on out before the parade, after the parade and (we won't tell anyone) even during the parade, to warm up with some good tunes and great food and drink.

Ain't No Grave gonna make you keep still during this song

I'm no Pentecostal--I'm not particularly demonstrative even for a Southern Baptist--but this rendering makes me want to get loud in a dusty wood-floored church, surrounded by women with beehive hairdos (not a B-52's reference, kids).

I first heard this song from Russ Taff, on the Under Their Influence album. I prefer that version, featuring the great James Hollihan's instrumentals and the equally great Ashley Cleveland's bgv's. I do a poor imitation of it from time to time when I'm feeling especially free. I even added my own verse...about dancing, yet!

Here's Russ Taff singing live to the track. Make room. You will move.
