Der Belsnickel – Patrick McAvinue (04:15)


Songwriter: Patrick McAvinue
Publishing: McAvinue Music, BMI
Release Date: July 12, 2019

A modern Christmas carol for the Belsnickel. The Belsnickel is a darker German Folklore character that visits children during the Christmas holiday. For you music nerds, the tune is in the mode of Lydian b7. It gives it a bright character, while still sounding lightly sinister – much like the Belsnickel.

Patrick-fiddle, Mike Cleveland-mandolin, Gaven Largent-resophonic guitar, Shaun Richardson-guitar, Scott Vestal-banjo, Ethan Jodziewicz-bass
