will be here before we know it !

For any of the new folks here on the Nation every Christmas we compile a


of Seasonal songs played, composed and sung by our members, we have been doing this for the last several years with great success and some great songs!

The primary technical requirement is that the recording be of  good quality, for example, If you are singing, we want to be able to hear your voice! 

We always prefer your own seasonal songs or public domain songs written and performed by our own members on their own home made instruments, you  MUST NOT send in copyrighted songs such as "White Christmas" !!



email completed song files to Slowpaw Steve at :

Once all submitted recordings are in... 

the completed album can be downloaded from a new download page posted a few days before Christmas for you to share with CBN members, friends and family!.

Let's hope we have another
