    The Lullaby Album

    Gill Bowman - The Lullaby AlbumThe perfect soundtrack to gently lull wee ones off to sleep.Practically guaranteed to put anyone to sleep, this album is designed to play as one long dreamy soundscape. It begins with bright tunes at the start of baby’s bedtime routine, and gradually becomes quiet and gentle. By the time you tiptoe from the nursery, your baby will be sound asleep. Warning: Also effective on adults! – Find out more.

    Gill Bowman - GOLDAlthough Song Circle is first and foremost a live thing, the albums have generated a loyal following: My Yellow Ukulele, The Red Album (like being at a live Song Circle), The Lullaby Album (for lulling off to sleep) and Stories from the Hamper (great for long journeys or rainy days indoors). GOLD features another 32 tracks – many songs and rhymes which don’t feature on the other albums, including the much requested ‘dancing songs!’. – Find out more.
