A number of years ago I came across a link to a homemade Christmas album A Ukulele Christmas 2005 by a chap called Ballard C Boyd. He is a director / singer-songwriter.
The album was free to download. The inspiration behind this idea was to record himself singing festive songs – some penned by himself or pastiches of existing tunes – and make a Christmas present for his family and friends. He has subsequently kept this tradition, producing a further nine short albums. The 2014 one is called Pretty Paper.
Anyone at PLUC and beyond with a hint of Christmas cheer, go and listen to his Christmas albums. There’s a taster for you below.
Happy Christmas and New Year.
