These days, as I go from preschool to party to library to family concert, I'm often asked, "Do you play 'Let it Go?'  My answer is, "No, for that you want my daughter Hanna!" 

Hanna is 17 years old, and she even looks a bit like Elsa, though she has a sweet voice and a cheerful sound on the ukelele that's all her own.  She does "Let it Go" so beautifully, I leave it all up to her!  It's quite something to see an entire roomful of 4-year-olds singing along to every word.

They'll be singing along to the Hit Disney Song, and many other favorites at this fantastic farmer's market!  Hanna and I play lots of songs together, including the ones I wrote for her when she was a toddler.  Don't miss this one, folks!
