Today Bruce Springsteen released a new album which features American Folk Songs written by folk singer Pete Seeger, called “We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions”.
I am a huge Bruce Springsteen fan but am excited not only for this as a Springsteen fan who is an adult person, I am excited that this is good, clean American Folk Music that I can listen to with my children.
So, attention parents, this is a great way to expose your children to classic American folk songs.
Homeschooling parents: this would make a great addition to your curriculum as part of American history or music studies.
If you would like to watch a video of the recording of “John Henry” (or just listen to it) go to this Amazon link and press the ‘play’ button that appears under the little video screen. Listening to this gives a flavor of what the music is like overall.
My husband saw a video of one of the songs on Country Music Television last weekend. I guess this is begin marketed to country music listeners.
To find out more about this album or to hear about his concert tour, go to Springsteen’s website: BruceSpringsteen.net.
