|Format:||Music CD 1996|
|Availability:||Available at 1 Library 1 of 1 copy|
Designed for children of grade school age or older, features some of the folk songs & stories that have given pleasure to so many generations of American children. Unlike most folk music records for children, these selections are not re-creations by urban performers; instead, some of our most skilled traditional musicians have been asked to perform their favorite childhood songs & stories. The result is a collection of folklore that is not only highly musical, but, through its wide spectrum of native voices, directly speaks of America's farms, ranches & mountain cabins.
