Ballard C. Boyd plays the ukulele. And he’s made a tradition of recording a new ukulele Christmas album every year for nine consecutive holiday seasons, as a gift to friends and family.

In 2013, Ballard recorded “Suddenly It’s Christmas” – a small Holiday sampler that’s available free for download.

The earlier eights albums are available too, below. Not available in any store (because Ballard only owns the rights to the few songs he’s written). You also can download the original cover art by designer Pete Holm, print it out yourself and impress your whole family.

Share with your friends, and enjoy. Happy Holidays, y’all!
