Clark Colborn is a hard rock, progressive & experimental guitarist. Fans & reviewers compare him to Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Brian May, Steve Vai, and Jimmy Page.

Available now: Ukrainian Bell Carol
So, this melody is familiar to most people in the USA as “Carol of the Bells,” although that title refers to a specific arrangement of a traditional Ukrainian Bell Carol with new, unrelated lyrics written in English.
