We also played songs about mud and MORE Halloween tunes. New to Ages 3 and Up! this week was Renee and Jeremy’s It’s a Big World. They just put out a really nice video for “We Are One,” that you can see by clicking here. Also, strangely coincidentally, we played a couple of songs from Tom Glazer. Unbeknownst to me, Smithsonian Folkways recordings issued a collection of his work last Tuesday, entitled Sings “Honk-Hiss-Tweet-GGGGGGGGGG” and Other Children’s Favorites, pictured above. I’ve not yet heard it, but it should be good. Spooky!

And, speaking of spookiness, Happy Halloween!!!
