Hope Harris presents Cousins Jamboree, a downhome kid jam, review

Whether your kids love to sing along with easy to follow lyrics or rather clap to the beat, the new album from Hope Harris, Cousins Jamboree will keep their toes tapping and faces smiling. 

Many parents may remember Hope Harris from her debut album. Julie the Starfish and Other Lullabies. This album was considered an instant classic because Harris' blend of voice and guitar has a calming effect on listeners. 

Harris' latest release, Cousins Jamboree, is a combination of various music genres. From classic country to old school rock and rock, the 16 songs range from whimsy to teaching tools.  Whether your kids need some assistance with good manners (track 10, Good Manners) or could use some encourage to try a new activity (track 8, I Can Do It), Harris' easy going lyrics provide helpful life lessons without being preachy. 

My kids love songs where they can sing along and laugh.  Their personal favorites were Eddie the Otter (track 7) and Gelbart Dufrain (track 11). When these songs come on, there is a lot of clapping, stomping and singing quite loudly in the van. 

Cousins Jamboree can be purchased on iTunes and CD Baby. It was recently awarded the Parents' Choice Silver Award Winner.

Hope Harris will be performing on the following dates. 
  • June 14, Short Pump Pals, Short Pump Town Center, Richmond, Virginia, 11 AM
  • September 18, Diggity Fest, with Dan Zane, Maymont Park, Richmond Virginia.
