Exclusive Premiere of Elizabeth Mitchell’s “Froggy Went a Courtin’ ”

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

To celebrate the release of children’s folk singer Elizabeth Mitchell’s new album, Blue Clouds, we have an exclusive look at the record’s first single, ”Froggy Went a Courtin.’ ”

The music on Blue Clouds is a mix of original compositions as well as covers of everything from traditional folk music to David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix. All performances are by Mitchell and You Are My Flower, her extended family band that includes her husband, Daniel Littleton, and their 11-year-old daughter, Storey. Featuring artwork by award-winning illustrator Remy Charlip’s book, “Arm in Arm,” this record is just as beautiful to the eyes as it is to the ears.

Listen to ”Froggy Went a Courtin’ ” below, and make sure to check out Blue Clouds, just released by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.
