Everything But the Girl went on hiatus in 2000 as Ben Watt focused on DJing and the pair started a family.
Returning to music solo in 2007, Thorn released two discs before putting out the seasonal selection Tinsel and Lights in 2012.
She shares how Christmas has changed for her over the years, from her days as a touring musician to settling into family life with Watt. Plus Pink Martini.
The mini orchestra led by founder/pianist Thomas Lauderdale and singer China Forbes released their first of a series of seasonal albums in 2010.
We go back to their interview and performance for that first Joy to the World disc and hear both classic and unusual tunes.
That and more this week on Conversations from the World Cafe!
