Liner Notes In 1986, in conversation iwth Meg Rose Sorrell (then owner of the Cave in Chapel Hill, NC) we decided that I should do a Christmas show.  Over the years the show has become a wonderful family and community event, especially during the set of sing-along carols with nieces, nephews, parents and now grandchildren joinging in.  I have many fond memories - three generations of my family and my wife's family, my dad leading a verse of We Three Kings, my mother drinking a beer at age 90 and taking in the whole scene.  Due to the persistence of Blair Pollock, in 2011 the 26th annual was recorded by Jerry Brown of the Rubber Room, and the result si 18 songs from all three sets plus two songs on video (filmed by Davis Stillson Associates) that can be viewed on the computer.
Review (Raleigh) News & Observer: "Each of the past 46 (webgal note: it's really 26) Decembers, Jim Watson has carried his acoustic guitar, songbooks and lyric sheet handouts to Chapel Hill’s Cave, and invited all to join in an evening of Yuletide cheer. Watson’s Christmas singalongs have helped make “the season to be merry” ever more so. Last year’s concert, recorded live by the Rubber Room’s Jerry Brown, is an early 18-track gift that will brighten days and nights leading to the arrival of Old St. Nick."
