Morning Notes: Waylan St. Palan and the Magic Elves

“This year would have been out 20 year anniversary so to not have a show is kind of a bummer,” says Nate Palan on a zoom interview while quarantining in Italy. Palan instead challenged his band mates of Waylan St Palan and the Magic Elves to write songs with this year in mind.

The result is “An Old Fashioned Christmas.” With songs like “Quarantine Christmas” and “Christmas at the bar” this album does not replace the show that the High Noon Saloon would have hosted, but it might hold you over until next year when this band can revisit their take on all the Christmas classics.
