Acoustic Christmas (2008)
Updated: Nov 20
Acoustic Christmas is a 2008 Christmas extended play (EP) by the Christian music husband and wife duo Farrell and Farrell. The duo released the EP independently and was available exclusively at their website farrellandfarrell.net.
As of 2022, Acoustic Christmas was made available at digital music stores like Apple Music and streaming music players like Spotify. It was Farrell and Farrell's first new recordings in nearly two decades and it was intended as a low-profile release and to thank their fans. Acoustic Christmas features traditional Christmas hymns, a cover of the modern Christmas classic "Mary, Did You Know" and two original songs written by Bob Farrell that were recorded by other artists; "Heirlooms" (recorded by Amy Grant on A Christmas Album) and "Child of Peace" (recorded by Sandi Patty on the 1992 Hallmark Christmas album Celebrate Christmas!).
