"I used to sing this with my students at the Roosevelt Island Day Nursery every day. Every day! They never got tired of it, especially the part where we would do a little switcheroo and they would sing the lead and I would sing "yes ma'am!" back to them. Now it's Storey's turn!"

— Elizabeth Mitchell, from the liner notes to Sunny Day

A true family affair, Sunny Day features performances with Mitchell's husband and musical partner, Daniel Littleton, their nine-year-old daughter Storey, and Storey's cousins and friends.

Guest performers include:

  • Levon Helm
  • Dan Zanes
  • Jon Langford (Mekons)
  • The Children of Agape Choir of South Africa
