Soothing lullabies

Sleepy Sky Lullaby
performed by Eddie Douglas

Douglas' soothing collection of poems and nursery rhymes will lull little ones and parents into a good night's rest. His melodies bring new life to well-known verses such as the Latin-tinged Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, the gentle Star Light, Star Bright and a liltingly charming version of Hey Diddle Diddle

His interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson's The Swing begins and ends with  the twittering of birds, evoking, as all Douglas' songs do, the fond images and memories of childhood, children, and the children we once were. Especially touching is Carry Me, whose verses magically convey all the love and security that comes with being a parent.
