Blue and Red Make Purple is engaging, playful, and utterly endearing! Included are notes highlighting the history, instruments and unique characteristics of each musical genre along with activities and listening suggestions.

MUSIC CD The accompanying CD offers 12 captivating songs that meld many styles including Dixieland swing, bluegrass, folk, Cajun, calypso and klezmer.

This album immediately exudes a happy feeling.  The vocals are so sweet and light, and have such a beautifully positive vibe.  Each song has its own character, with different themes and sounds from track to track.

Blue and Red Make Purple

The first song is “Little Blue Car”, and kicks off the album with a fun, upbeat song:

Everyone get into the car
We’re driving fast and we’re driving far
What better thing to do while we drive
Than make some music before we arrive
Get out your banjo and your guitar
We’re makin’ music in our little blue car

Blue And Red Make Purple is sure to leave you in a good mood.  The music is fun to listen to, and the illustrations
