Auld Lang Syne Project

Please help us by singing along with Whistling Prairie for latest Christmas album. We'd like to have you join in on the last two verses of Auld Lang Syne. We're hoping to have all our friends old and new, as well as our family and extended family join in. Judy has grand visions of a video collage on YouTube. Ed is thinking an audio mix alone would be a miracle.

Please send videos in MP4 format. MP3 files would also be fine, but we would be sad to miss out on your video.

Amanda singing and playing January 2, 2015. Ed recording.

Here's an MP3 of the song. Start singing along at 2:40. That's 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Here are the words, as well.

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o’ lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!


1. Listen to the song on your phone or tablet. Put only one earbud in so you can still hear yourself sing.Start singing at 2:40.

2. Record a video of yourself singing along using either your desktop computer, laptop or camera. Windows 8 has a camera app. Windows 7 includes Movie maker which allows you to record yourself. Just click on the Webcam video tab. Call me for advice if you need it!

4. Look at the camera while you're recording.

3. Send the video to

Thanks! We look forward to hearing from you!

Nolan, Crystal, Brittany, John singing.
Just for the fun of it, here is a video of the band as they made the recording. We did a second take where we added instruments, (including John on the saw), but here is the original take.
