It’s that time of the year, as Daryl Hall conquers his head cold to celebrate the season in a series of Christmas duets with former Best New Artist Grammy winner Shelby Lynne on the 61st and latest edition of Live from Daryl’s House, the critically acclaimed, award-winning web-to-cable series. For this special holiday episode, Daryl and Shelby join in a “delta blues-meets-Philly soul” throwdown, featuring a half-dozen performances–four songs from their respective Christmas albums, Daryl Hall and John Oates’ 2006 release Home for Christmas and the singer-songwriter’s 2010 set Merry Christmas, as well as a pair of Lynne originals. The show, now available via over-the-air syndication, will premiere on Viacom’s high-definition music channel Palladia Dec. 13, then will be available on www.lfdh.com on Dec. 15.

”She’s a really interesting singer and songwriter,” comments Daryl, who says he’s wanted to have Lynne on the show for awhile. “And even though she came up in Nashville, I think she’s a great soul singer. She means every word that comes out of her mouth.”
