It's my plan to try and post something promoting the holiday season at least once a week for the next month. After I ran into the free Drew Holcomb album last week I also came across this lovely EP by Lauren Melendez titled A Very Ukulele Christmas. Although it's only 3 songs, they are still 3 very well done songs. As someone who plays a ukulele from time to time, I definitely appreciate the sounds Lauren brings on this record.
With the ukulele, she offers us a different feel to the traditional songs O Come Emmanuel and The First Noel. I can envision listening to these songs in front of a nice fire, sipping eggnog, all while spreading Christmas cheer to all of those who happen to be lucky enough to be around me ..... (ok, ok that may be a bit of an exaggeration but you get the point.)
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with this album and may even grow a greater appreciation for the ukulele, and realize that its music isn't always the same as stereotypical uke songs such as Mele Kalikimaka. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do, let me be the first to tell you they fit perfect in any holiday playlist.
