In the Christmas Spirit: Walk Off the Earth

Make sure that you scroll down to the last video of "Fairytale of New York", which is an outstanding version of this soon to be crusty Christmas classic.

    Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Walk Off the Earth is one of those rare artistic ensembles that combines fine original, offbeat interpretations of popular songs, while doing a smattering of parodies, as well as their original material. In this post, we offer three renditions of their most current holiday mainstays.

    Even though "Fairytale of New York" is nearly 30 years old, it has never been represented here on BCN. Now we have three versions, with Walk Off the Earth performing a lovely, visually spontaneous version here below, and two other versions here, including the original by The Pogues.

Christmas video three is a lovely acoustic duo, featuring Gianni Luminati, Sarah Blackwood doing their serious version of "Fairytale of New York": Below.
