Grab Your Dancing Rain Boots for Marsh Mud Madness with Roger Day

Roger - Marsh 1

For it to only be June, I’ve been celebrating summer over on Swing Whistle Zing for far too long it seems—I think we got Spring Fever a little bit too early in our house.  In any case, I hope your summer plans involve catching some life music whether it’s at a neighborhood restaurant or a full-blown concert stadium.

But if your opportunities to catch live music are few and far between you might enjoy catching a concert on DVD, right in your air-conditioned living room, and I’ve got a recommendation that is sure to please the whole family.

Rodger Day has a new release called Marsh Mud Madness that was filmed and produced in conjunction with the University of Georgia Marine Institute on Sapelo Island and the Savannah Music Festival.

This DVD, featuring 12 songs, is a wonderful hybrid of educational video segments and concert footage from the Savannah Music Festival.   You and your family will learn all about the eco system of this East Coast barrier island while singing along with Roger’s original music about this unique location and its inhabitants.

This summer I’ve noticed that my littlest girls still love one of their favorite Unplugged Play ideas from last year:  giving their baby dolls a bath.
