For the first installment of my Songs of Christmas Past Series I am going to be talking about Blue Christmas which was part of last year’s concert Christmas In The British Isles.
The original version of this song was performed by Doye O’Dell in 1948. It’s popularity was cemented eight years later in 1957 on Elvis Presley’s Christmas Album. Since that time numerous music groups have done covers of this song including The Beach Boys, Loretta Lynn, Martina McBride and Blake Shelton. In our performance Roger Hurd did an amazing solo.
