Digital Advent Calendar – Door 6: Ma Bessie & Her Pig Foot Band

As we can’t play any live gigs this Christmas time, Matt (guitar), Andy (percussion), Mike (saxophone) and of course Ma Bessie herself, Julia Titus were excited to be given the opportunity to record an exclusive Christmas performance for Reading Place of Culture before the recent lockdown.

The set includes some Christmas numbers alongside favourites from our live set including “Careless Love”, “Don’t Fence Me In” and “Gimme a Pig Foot (and a bottle of beer)”, the song that gave the band its name.

It was great to perform live again after such a long break, we had such a great time that we’re already planning another session in the new year! We hope you feel the urge to sing along, to dance along and to generally get into the festive spirit. Merry Christmas!
