Blue Clouds is no exception--we love it! Soren especially likes "Hop Up, My Ladies" (over and over and over) and the Partridge Family-sounding "Kooks". I was surprised at how quickly he learned the lyrics to sing along. I personally love her version of Van Morrison's "Everyone" (I loved that song at the end of The Royal Tenenbaums, one of my favorite movies) and its message of inclusion and hope.
I'm fond of how Elizabeth Mitchell brings a fresh perspective to traditional folk songs, introducing them to a new generation. Her music has a way of erasing the smudges of a bad day.
