We love this book. Those of you who listen to our show regularly have heard Amberly gush over it often. FYI, this is what the book looks like- don’t mistake it for the album which is equally good, but doesn’t contain nearly so much nifty information about making music at home with your family as the book. More information about The Nields projects for kids and families can be found here.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Or, at least, we hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! This week, in honor of Thanksgiving, we had turkey tunes, not turkey tunes, songs about baking and dancing around the kitchen with your family and friends, a few songs about WHY people do things, some country flavored tunes inspired by a new tribute compilation titled I LOVE: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow, cowboy lullabies and nightlight songs. It was a BIG show!
