GET THOSE SONGS IN!!!

***Christmas 2017***

will be here before we know it !

For any of the new folks here on the Nation every Christmas we compile a FREE DOWNLOAD album of 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 reasonably good quality, for example, If you are singing, we want to be able to hear your voice! 

We mostly 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" !!

---COPYRIGHTED SONGS WILL NOT BE INCLUDED ON THE ALBUM---

...the completed album will be downloaded from a new download page near Christmas, I will list received pledges and submissions below.

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