Mirja Mäkelä sings a Finnish Christmas song, Nisse-Polka, with The Country & Eastern Party Band, but since Mirja was not with us in the recording studio but sent us her recorded singing the Party Band had to do the accompaniment afterwards! Mirja says: “This is the story: At first, I sent you a demo-recording of the song (me + a Finnish piano player Riitta Paakki) as an example. Then, you recorded the accompaniment without me in Sweden, and then I recorded the voice on top of it in Finland. Great session, härlig skiva, tack alla!!! Puss och kram 🙂 i miss you ♥”

Most photos from the recording session were shot by Jon Edergren from Electric Boogie. You can see more of them at the C&E Party Band Page if you press MORE IMAGES

All songs in the christmas calendar are from our album Another Christmas/Alternativ Jul
