Last week I was contacted by Holly Yarbrough -- a very talented singer with a great appreciation for Mister Rogers. Her appreciation is so great that she recorded an album of songs from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
Mister Rogers Swings! is a collection of songs from the Neighborhood as performed by Holly featuring in a swinging, somewhat-lounge music style. As the promotional postcard Holly sent with her CD suggests, "It's Cocktail Time in Mister Rogers Neighborhood." This is somewhat ironic considering Fred Rogers' abstinance from alcohol, but whether or not you enjoy an adult beverage now and again, this album is a lot of fun! Many thanks for sharing, Holly!
Give Holly a listen on her MySpace page and pick up her CD at CDBaby!
