The Folk Tree got into the Christmas spirit on Dec. 20 with a live music extravaganza featuring three different acts.  Cedar Valley band The Enablers sang about having a dysfunctional Christmas and added some jingle bells to their twin-fiddle excitement. Curtis and Loretta, a duo from the Twin Cities, played Victorian carols and got us all singing along.  Singer-songwriter Raldo Schneider drew from his decades of writing for some songs about winter and its discontents.  A good time was had by all!
