Album Notes
BROTHER YUSEF: Guitar, Vocals, Foot stomp & Ankle Tambourine

Album Liner Notes:

I began my music career playing the Blues in
bars, coffee houses, restaurants and festivals. I
never imagined myself performing Blues for little
kids. An invitation to perform at my daughter's
day care spawned for me a new career ;
"Brother Yusef, Children's Performer". After the
success of my day care debut I created a musical
program called "Kids Get the Blues Too/Blues For
Beginners". My performances offered a Blues
twist to some old children's classics. Songs like
"3 Little Monkeys", "This Old Man" and" "Hey
Diddle Diddle", take on new life.

I still perform at the usual place like bars,
coffee houses, restaurants and festivals, but these
days I can also be found playing the blues at
schools, libraries and day cares.

My 3 yr old son loves it--
Our 3 yr old son, Luke loves this cd. He listens to it SEVERAL times everyday(the louder the better). As parents we enjoy it just as much. Pretty awesome CD

David L Childers

Right up there with Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly's children's records
I played Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly for my kids. If this had been around it would have been a favorite. I love it.

laurie sterner

knowing most of the words makes itpretty cool - brings back all those Kindergarten/elementary school day memories with a fun new sound! Listened to it with my 11 yr old daughter - think she was pretty amazed when I sang along!
Great website for ordering too..had it so quick!


Wonderful Performer, Wonderful Album
My 3 year old and I saw Brother Yusef perform these songs at the local library, and this CD captures the magic of Brother Yusef's live performances superbly.

Hip Old Mom, Young Kids

My 5 year old is chair dancing in her car seat and clapping and singing along! My 11 year old says it's cool. Looking at that guitar in the corner in a new light. Great blues twist to the familiar tunes plus new variety gets you moving and smiling. Mad skills! Woohoo! Awesome ordering service, too.


Can't help but smile!
We dance and laugh and smile non-stop!!!


For the whole family!! We can't help but dance!


Too cool for little kids?
If my grandson doesn't like it, I'll keep it on my own playlist. Cool.
