Thread Name: Looking For Celtic Songs For Children
Subject: RE: Looking For Celtic Songs For Children
Baloo Baleerie is a gorgeous Gaelic lullaby - I just recorded it but it's not out yet. It will be on my CD called "Simply Beautiful".
Far in the Wood is a short ballad in the style you're looking for, I think - it's on my "Up and Over the Moon! giggle, dance and cuddle songs for the Very Young" Cd.
There are also some really wonderful Celtic songs and rhymes on Carol Ashton's CD "A Children's Ceilidh". It has spoken rhymes and songs -a great resource - for instance these traditional ones - The Tailor and the Mouse, My Aunt Jane, and Goodie on a Saucer.
