The second find is one of piano music, performed by local musician and long- time Severna Park resident Jeff Harding.
His recordings titled, I'm Home for Christmas, and the latest release, A Christmas Song, can be found at Side Street Framers in Park Plaza, B.J.'s Blings & Things consignment shop, Cafe Bretton and Gary's Gardens. A Christmas Song is available at Pat's Hallmark in Park Plaza as well.
"It was so much fun, I decided to do A Christmas Song," Harding wrote in an email.
Harding has been playing piano professionally for more than 30 years.
The latest release, I'm Home for Christmas, was released two years ago. It
includes 10 songs by artists such as Vince Guaraldi and Mel Torme. Although a majority of the selections are piano music, the release does include four vocal tracks, Harding said.
"The vocals were done in the tradition of the Christmas crooners that graced our turntables when I was growing up. Bing Crosby and Mel [Torme] were welcome vocalists in our home. Singing A Christmas Song, made me feel quite nostalgic," wrote Harding.
A portion of the purchase price goes to the Rebecca Harding Memorial Fund, which contributes to local charities and scholarships. If you have any questions, call Harding at 410-980-6626.
The albums sell for $10. Music lovers will delight in his tunes while supporting a local artist.
