Get Your Kid Rocking

What better way to get your 4th of July celebration grooving than with that most American of art forms: Rock & Roll! Part of the celebrated Putumayo Kids Playground collection, kids of all ages can shake, rattle and roll to music by a stellar group of established and up-and-coming artists on Rock & Roll Playground. Grammy® Award winners Dan Zanes and Friends invite you to “bug” and “twist” on the song “Let’s Shake,” while rockabilly royalty Rosie Flores churns out feverish licks on “This Little Girl’s Gone Rockin’.” Grammy Award winner Taj Mahal and Linda Tillery lend an infectious Bo Diddley beat to “Willie and The Hand Jive,” and noted singer-songwriter Peter Himmelman delivers a classic rock performance on “Little Bitty Baby.” Grammy Award winner Bill Harley sings about a slumbering teenage brother in “Sleep the Whole Day Through” and Uncle Rock performs a blues-infused cover of the Steppenwolf classic “Magic Carpet Ride.” Rock & Roll Playground also features 2009 Grammy nominee Brady Rymer as well as Charity and the JAMband; New Jersey’s StarFish; Parents’ Choice® Gold award winner Roger Day; Melissa Green and John Lennon Songwriting Contest winners Rhythm Child. Enjoy this download of the song “The StarFish Stomp.” Note: you can simply listen online using the player below, or you can “right click” to download the mp3 file.
