Musical Saturday!

Today, we were lucky enough to be invited to the house of my dad's childhood friend, Stewart Foster, of the HubCats (here), and his wife Cheryl -- for an afternoon of music-playing and yummy-food eating! He also offered to record some of our songs for us!

My uncle had wanted me to record the opening verse of Golden Slumbers by the Beatles for a separate project, and as soon as Stewart started playing it in C# for me, I was hooked. I asked him if we could record the entire song with our Ellie tracks. Though I love the little lullabies I've written for E and am so thrilled to have them sounding a million times better than my iPhone recordings, Golden Slumbers was my favorite recording of the afternoon. Stewart's guitar playing is just so pretty, and years ago, I imagined singing this to my baby. It made me so happy to have it.

Here are all the songs -- Thanks again, Stewart & Cheryl!

Golden Slumbers, with Stewart on guitar:

Old Dirt Road, with me on ukulele and Mark on bass:

Ellie Singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and The Wheels on the Bus:

Rain Keeps Falling, just me and the ukulele. I need to work on my chord transitions. Darn you, E-minor! But, I wanted to have this:
