Cool Christmas Music For You

It's that time of the year when the holiday music goes on heavy rotation in our CD players and iPods. If you're like me, you add a few discs to your collection each year. Here are four kids' CDs that will make fine additions to your roster of cool Christmas tunes:

  • The Hipwaders - A Kindie Christmas
    The Hipwaders have always been inventive and unique. Their fresh take on Christmas includes all original songs, written by lead singer Tito Uquillas, and performed in their usual jangly indie rock style. There are some new holiday classics on this disc!

  • Danny Adlerman, Yosi, & Kevin Kammeraad - ...And A Happy New Year
    This is just a fun group of guys singing a fun mix of holiday favorites and originals. A bit of folk, rock, and pop, you can tell from the easygoing style and laughter that these three had a good time making this CD.

  • Various Artists - Putumayo Presents A Family Christmas
    The Putumayo World Music label has always stood for high quality, and they don't disappoint in this wonderful collection of festive Christmas songs. Highlights include Martin Sexton's "Holly Jolly Christmas" and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's spirited "Is Zat You Santa Claus?"

  • Paige Stroman - Christmas Lullabies To Create Memories
    Perfect for the quiet times this season, Paige Stroman keeps it mellow as she sings the old favorites, like "Away In A Manger," along with five new tunes. A beautifully produced CD, this one sounds great all the way through.

You can find all of these CDs at online stores like The Pokey Pup, iTunes, and Amazon. Or click on the links in the above descriptions to get to the artists' web sites and buy directly from them. I encourage you to check them out!

Disclaimer: Two of these CDs were sent to me by the artists for review.

Phil, have enjoyed all your posts this year and enjoyed the pictures of family and reading about your teaching experiences. Your posts are always uplifting and fun, especially have enjoyed the trip pictures to the San Diego Zoo, I use to live in San Diego and went to the zoo often with my children. Again thanks for posts as they have brought laughter and sometimes a tear to me this year. I think my granddaughter would enjoy Paige Stroman's CD. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and to all your bloggsters!
