Wrapping up this year’s edition of the 12 Days of Local Christmas is emerging Bucks County singer-songwriter Lily Mae with her new “Winter Lullaby.” The song begins quiet and contemplative with a guitar and plaintive vocal melody, but swells with the gradual introduction of a marching drum beat and melodic ukelele. In the end, it’s warm like a crackling fireplace; listen and download below, and download the entire XPN Local 12 Days of Christmas 2013 album for free here. Enjoy, and have a happy holiday!
