I played last night at a church. One of the residents at one of the seniors communities I play for has a son that lives in a small town nearby. And I guess they were hard up for some special Christmas music, so he invited me to share at his church. It was in the church's fellowship hall, with the members sitting at the various tables, about three dozen or so people. I used the occasion to tell the story of "Stille Nacht," as it was originally known, and still known in Germany. Of course, in the English speaking world, we know it as "Silent Night." I shared the story because it was first performed (on guitar, no less) 200 years ago this Christmas Eve. So it seemed appropriate to share the story and the song. It's an interesting story. If you're not familiar with it, it's worth your time to read up on it. I played it fingerstyle and sang it in the original German, then in Greek, then Spanish and then, of course, English. Oh, and of course, the guitar I played was my Logan Custom tele acoustic/electric, going into my Fishman Loudbox Mini.
