CHRISTMAS DAY IN AUSTRALIA
Blind Uncle Harry
OVERALL RATING: (⭐️⭐️⭐️)
Blind Uncle Harry gifts us with a song that Santa will absolutely love.
Blind Uncle Harry is a singer/songwriter from Indiana whose stage name is a tribute to his great-uncle Harry who was a blind fiddle player. Harry and his band describe themselves as “hillbilly hippie shreddin’ folk-rock” folks, and this song definitely shows off the chill, bluegrass, hippie-esque formula that he seems to be known for.
This folksy untraditional Christmas song is the perfect heartfelt alternative to the customary holiday classics. The lyrics for “Christmas Day in Australia” are definitely unique, clever, and funny, while also political (The band briefly touches on issues of economic inequality in the song). This song is worth checking out if you’re looking for something fun and a bit different to end a not particularly cheery year.
