Nowell Sing We Clear was developed by Tony Barrand in 1975 to present the traditional music of Christmas: the story of Jesus as preserved in (mostly English) folksong, and customs such as wassailing and mummer''s plays associated with the midwinter season. The performers are Tony Barrand, John Roberts, Fred Breunig and Andy Davis (who replaced original member Steve Woodruff), and they still present this show annually, mostly in and around New England.
"Just Say Nowell" is the fourth CD release of the group; the earlier LPs are now out of print except for a sampler CD, also available on CDBaby. This album, like their other recordings, is filled with four-part a capella harmony as well as arrangements for fiddle, accordion, concertina, banjo and drum. It features John Kirkpatrick''s "Chariots," a wonderful Christmas anthem for peace written by the great English folksinger.

NOTE: We use the older English spelling "Nowell" for our name. Searches on "Noel Sing We Clear" may not find us - and we wouldn''t want that to happen!
