The great American folk songs and rhymes on this release have enthralled young people for generations. This recording embodies the true spirit of these songs, delightfully sung by Jill Trinka and accompanied by a wide variety of acoustic instruments, including guitar, dulcimer, autoharp, piano, percussion, string bass, and violin. The illustrated album booklet includes complete lyrics and song directions. And all of the performances are in step with John M. Feierabend’s philosophy of providing a nurturing environment for musical growth. Children and their families are sure to enjoy this and the other imaginative and engaging albums drawn from John’s eight collections of folk songs for kids ages three and up. UPDATE: Over the past year, a committee formed by the Feierabend Association for Music Education (FAME) developed a set of standards for evaluating repertoire associated with the curriculum. With their guidance, we have removed several songs that were deemed to be harmful, derogatory, or disrespectful in regard to their histories or context. We have also added a number of new songs and rhymes from a variety of world cultures. A link is available on the product page at www.giamusic.com that details these revisions for the curriculum book and the supplemental folk song collections.
