Taking its title from a song telling the Nativity story from the point of view of the animals in the stable, this show is a heart-warming look at the timeless rituals and folklore of midwinter England. Mysterious and magical songs of wassailing, wren-hunting, stirring the fire and incessant feasting come dressed up in a glittering finery of toe-tapping tunes and cracking choruses. Add a smattering of hilarious original songs and a sprinkling of carols both familiar and unfamiliar, all stirred up with John’s usual panache and supported by his scintillating skill on squeezeboxes, and you have the recipe for a rattling good sing, guaranteed to keep the spirits cheery and the cold at bay.
Kirkpatrick’s buoyant presence and lust for this music sounds more rampant than ever - Colin Irwin in fRoots Magazine
John delivers all the boisterous bonhomie and seasonal good cheer anyone could want - English Dance & Song
My favourite of all the English singers … he can move me to tears with a song (and) he's also the funniest man around. A great musician and performer, utterly without pretension – Shirley Collins in fRoots Magazine
