Folk Sounds

I don't know what it is about folk music but it has been growing on me over the years. Something about mandolins, fiddles, ukuleles and guitars penetrates. I think it's beautiful.

This is my new favorite baby gift, You are My Little Bird by Elizabeth Mitchell.

We listened to this on a recent road trip and LOVED it, all of us. It's sweet, whimsical, childish, folksy, and memorable.

The kids favorite is Little Liza Jane. Have a listen, like?

My favorite is Three Little Birds. Love it. Many mornings we all randomly burst into "Woke up this morning, smiled at the rising sun. Three little birds, sat on my doorstep, singing a sweet song...." What fun :).

I have a CD from my days in Haiti with the 3 Little Birds on it, and the kids absolutely love it. We sing it in the car, too. :)
And we learned Little Liza Jane at a music class once...I should get you a copy of our CD from there. I'll work on that; I bet you guys would like it.
