Go WaggalooSpring 2010 Music
Sarah Lee's sweet country lilt leads the way, complementing the fresh simplicity of old and new songs that celebrate childhood and the sheer pleasure of family and friends making music together. Two delightful songs-the title track, "Bright Clear Day" and "Fox and the Goose"-feature the words of Woody Guthrie set to music for the first time. Sarah Lee's "Don't I Fit in My Daddy's Shoes?" is resonant with her grandfather's spirit, while "Brush Your Teeth Blues #57" by Irion is a beautiful surprise and "Oni's Ponies" turns a child's simple observation ("Those are not horses, they are ponies") into melodic magic. The Seegers take the lead on a rousing version of "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain."
Infused with warmth and a sense of play, this album carries on the family tradition in another way: In 1992, a new audience was introduced to Woody Guthrie's charming children's songs when Arlo Guthrie and his siblings released "Woody's Grow Big Songs," combining their voices with recordings of their father to create an album that remains a stand-out in the field.
