Review:
As much for adults as for children, this exceptionally beautiful, soul-lifting collection of "Folk, Country, Gospel & Old-Timey Bedtime Songs" is performed by a treasure trove of deeply expressive vocalists and musicians. Among them: mandolin artist David Grisman ("Song for Two Pamelas," with Tony Rice), Sweet Honey in the Rock (with a gospel-style "Hush L'il Baby"), bluegrass artist Kathy Kallick ("Hobo's Lullaby"), folk-children's duo Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer ("Cowgirl's Lullaby"), Mulebone UK (a gentle, velvety "My Creole Belle"), New York jazz vocalist Lisa Sokolov ("All the Pretty Little Horses") and guitarist John LaBarbera with his tender instrumental rendition of the 18th century Appalachian-flavored ballad, "Who's Goin' to Shoe Your Pretty Little Foot."
