So Long, Farewell!

by Amber on January 9, 2012

Boston Children’s Music has been a fun site to write for and we feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet so many talented local artists. But all good things must come to an end and with my energy focused on WonderBaby.org I just can’t put in the effort here required to keep this site up and running.

So, for now, Boston Children’s Music is officially retired.

I am hopeful that I will be able to return to it someday or that maybe someone else will pick up the mantle and take the site over. I’d be happy to hand over the duties of writing and reviewing CDs to anyone who feels inclined to do so! If you’d like to discuss the possibilities, please contact me.

Thanks!

Stacey Peasley’s Together

by Amber on January 2, 2012

TogetherStacey Peasley is an emerging children’s musician, a good friend, and a wonderful mom. Her debut kids’ album is titled Together and all the songs are about playing and just being a kid. She sings from the heart and from the perspective of a mom, so her songs are full of love and sweetness, too.

Our favorite song on the CD is probably the title song, Together. The song starts out with upbeat horn flourishes and gets you ready to dance and hop along to the beat. The lyrics encourage kids to hold hands and dance together, play games together, and just be happy with each other. What a wonderful ice breaker!

Another great one is Dance Party. Yep, you can guess what this song asks you to do! Like Together, this song is upbeat and full of pep. It’s a wonderful way to get kids to move and follow directions.

And I know a little boy who can’t stop singing the super catchy Soapy Bubbles. This is a wonderful debut album and I can’t wait to see what Stacey comes out with next!

Gustafer YellowgoldThis is a big weekend for Boston fans of Gustafer Yellowgold!

Gustafer creator, Morgan Taylor, will be on the awesome radio program, The Playground, this Saturday at 6pm. Tune your dial to WERS at 88.9 FM and listen to Morgan talk about his music and play some Gustafer songs. All for free and in your living room – what could be better?

Actually, I think maybe a live performance at Coolidge Corner may be better. So after listening to Gustafer on the radio on Saturday night, why not head on out to Coolidge Corner in Brookline on Sunday morning to see the show live and in person?

The Gustafer Yellowgold show will be on Sunday, November 13th at 10:30 am. Tickets are $7.75 for kids and $9.75 for adults. You can buy tickets in advance here.
