'Lomax the Hound of Music'

Apparently there is a new television show for children on the (U.S.) Public Broadcasting System called, "Lomax the Hound of Music." A dog, Lomax, and his friends travel around the United States hunting for folk songs. There is a web site, with songs and suggestions for teaching music to children as well as games for children. It even has information about Alan Lomax. I have not seen the TV show, but a friend told me about the web site. I am very pleased that PBS would introduce folk music to a generation of children who do not have the opportunites we had to be among people singing folk songs together.
