Yvonne Youst, a composer and poet, has had a long career in music. Her vocal music, popular, folk, classical, has been performed on Public Radio and TV, and in concert, in New York and New England. Her wondrous words and music continue in her newest CD, THE SUNSHINE TRAIN, Fabulous Songs For Children Of All Ages. The songs are delightful, often humorous, and always meaningful. The CD covers a wide range of subjects, from The Sunshine Train bringing joy to each day, to the fun of rain, the wonder of a dancing pup, birds, the ocean, flowers, a parade of animals, a magical country fair, a happy robot. There is a song about the seasons, a song about singing together, a song to start the day, and one to say goodnight. Doree Elden is a totally unique and absolutely charming singer. This funny, funny exuberant British lady loves to tell stories when she sings. Her delightful performance moves from daffy to tender. Her enthusiasm is contagious and kids find themselves wanting to sing the songs just like Doree. And they can, because the words to all of the songs are included in the CD. The songs in THE SUNSHINE TRAIN are being sung and shared by many people... children, families, friends, children's groups. The 12 songs have been used for storytelling hours. Teachers have used them to create skits, dances, musicals. Groups are using them to sing around the campfire and at gatherings. The songs are happy memories in the making.
