The Independent Christmas Playlist: Ben Gerrard – Deck The Halls

Track 10 is by Ben Gerrard from Rochdale. Be contacted me when he found out I was looking for artists to add to my list. His song, a cover of an old traditional Christmas carol, hadn’t been released when he contacted me but I knew from listening to his other songs it was going to be a big number.

I don’t know about you, but I quite like rocking in a winter wonderland. And with Ben Gerrard’s stonking rendition of Deck The Halls, I can’t help but want to grab my air guitar and headbang until my family have to pacify me with huge quantities of mulled wine.

Deck The Halls is, of course, a Christmas staple – but once the screaming guitars grab you in the intro to this song, they will definitely not let go. That’s not to say that it’s all raucous, riotous rock – make sure you also keep out for the tastefully layered acoustic guitar parts that also make for really nice touches as the song progresses!

You can listen to Deck The Halls on the Independent Christmas Playlist, which has been lovingly compiled by Patrick Rowles. Read more about the Independent Christmas Playlist here!
