Last evening at our Coffee House this young musician of about 20 came in and sang songs before my time(I am 63). His first song was The Big Rock Candy Mountain and a few others of that period which I forget at the moment their names. Point being is that we must (should) sing to our children the songs we learned and dip even further back to the songs that out parents and grand parents sung.

Yes!! I have a little red vinyl kid's record of The Big Rock Candy Mountain...the cleaned up version, that is. My grandsons have all had their own CDs of the old 78s my family had which my brother put on tape. Morgan, the one who lives here, loves those old songs. That's so kewl that you heard a young'un singing these old, wonderful songs!

We had it on a record by Burl Ives, along with Angus MacFergus MacTavish Dundee.

I still have the song on Burl Ives Sings For Fun. I think my parents originally bought the album back in the 1950's. Definitely an early influence on me.

But I have to say that it absolutely warms my heart when I hear someone from a younger generation sing older songs and show an interest in the music.

And I ain't ashamed to say I've learned a few things from the young 'uns!
