If Kindermusik were KIndy rock

From the Smithsonian music label: Elizabeth Mitchell, You are My Little Bird. (I still, really like our version of "Little Liza Jane" best).

It holds a collection of folk songs that one researcher warns are fast-disappearing from the mouths of today's babes. Why should anyone care? Because America's folk songs tell the story of our ancestors, their struggles, their plight, and their delights. It provides a connection to the past that you can't find in a history book, or a oral report.

Plus, I appreciate the CD's simple arrangements, laid back vocals in a key I can sing: A flat.
