Hear many holiday tunes, including Christmas carols, done up New Sounds-style for this holiday program.  We'll hear from a new recording of non-syrupy Christmas music from accomplished Bay-area guitarist Sean Smith.  Plus, an arrangement of a Christmas carol framed by an alap, traditional a cappella music from Slovenia, and an old favorite from John Fahey and Richard Rushkin.  All that, and more.
