Camp Holiday (Kitchen Table)

Martin Sexton revamps holiday standards busker-style: mouth trumpet on "Holly Jolly Christmas" and various vocal geegaws to the particularly lovely "Silver Bells." The sole original on the album, "Welcome to the Camp," is a cute celebration of every imaginable December holiday. Probably not destined to be a classic, but a pleasant enough romp o'er the hills of snow.
