'Mother Mother' Covers Blue Christmas at Indie Christmas Rock Concert

December 13, 2011

Mother Mother, a five-piece Canadian indie rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia, closed out the CBC Radio 3’s Indie Christmas Rock Concert by paying tribute to the king with this performance of Blue Christmas.

While “Blue Christmas” was first recorded by Doye O'Dell in 1948, and then made famous in three separate recordings by country artist Ernest Tubb, it took Elvis Presley to make it a rock ‘n’ roll holiday classic. It first appeared on his 1957 “Elvis' Christmas Album.”

Just to make sure you don’t have a blue Christmas, here are lots of fun ways you can celebrate the holidays with Elvis!
