Radders’ Christmas Message

Ukulele Christmas - Ballard C Boyd's first Xmas album

Ballard C Boyd’s first Xmas album

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.

If you don’t yet have a uke (and don’t get one for Xmas!), perhaps this will inspire you to buy one and join a local ukulele group.

Happy Christmas and New Year.

Our annual Christmas Strumalong will be from 8pm, Tues 18 December 2012 in the Jolly Farmers pub, just outside Lewisham Hospital.

Contact us for links to the Xmas songbooks we’ll be using (we may also bring a few spare copies on the night).

This will be the last club night of the year – the following Tuesdays are Christmas Day & New Year’s Day. We will reconvene back at the Lewis Club on Tues 8 January 2013.

As always, all players are welcome to join us, whatever their level of experience. Just bring yourself & your uke!

Thanks to Ballard C Boyd for the use of his 2009 free Xmas ukulele cover image. See his website for more free albums.
