Folk Playground, the new release from Putumayo Kids, is due out this Tuesday, May 23. It’s a compilation featuring the artists mentioned here, as well as Dan Zanes, Liz Mitchell, Brady Rymer and more. It’s a fantastic sampling of familiar American folk music, presented by a veritable smorgasbord of current kids music hitmakers.
Highlights include "Got No Strings" sung by Michelle Shocked, "Froggie Went a Courtin" sung by Laurie Berkner, and Brady Rymer’s "It’s All How You Look at It." Hear samples and order your own copy here. Look at it as a great way to get your feet wet in the kids music genre; you’ll be ready for the grownup pool in no time. –Amy
