Subject: RE: Folky children's albums
Clare Beaton's got two illustrated children's books with really good CDs. The first one:
Playtime Rhymes for Little People
Is sang and played in an American bluegrass-esq fashion. Good singing and playing, female voice.
The second one:
Mother Goose Remembers
Is equally good and sang and played by an English sounding folk group, concertina being the prominent instrument. The male singer sounds a lot like Martin Carthy (!)
Both are thoroughly recommended.
