Yule Song: The Feast-Fire Lit


Yule-tide always means to me, first and foremost, people gathering inside to stay safe from cold weather, feasting on the still-recent autumn harvest and sharing stories to pass the time. While Covid-19 has prevented large in-person gatherings, the idea of that winter feast is still very much possible within our own households. My focus on the fire in particular has to do with a project I've had going to ready a fireplace in my home for use - it needed a hearth to protect the floor, and some safety checks to ensure nothing would catch fire that wasn't supposed to.

Musically, this one is rather unusual for me - a pretty simple polka rhythm, just voice and squeezebox. Anyone trying to play this on guitar or similar sorts of instruments will probably want to capo 1 fret. This also sits fairly low in the vocal range overall, so if you're someone with more of a tenor or soprano voice you'll want to shift it up several keys.

That means, in short, you can use them yourself and your grove, and play the song to your heart's content both in private and in public, but must give credit where credit is due, and if you're planning on selling something involving this song we need to talk about that first.
