Singers Sin and Swoon
Twelve popular traditional nursery rhymes and lullabies that have withstood the test of time. Rediscover the folk standards Pop Goes the Weasel, the well-known rhyming ditty that began as dance music, She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain, which was originally a railroad song derived from an old spiritual, and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, the quintessential lullaby based on a nineteenth-century poem. This new collection with fresh, original arrangements was recorded by the exceptionally gifted folk-roots duo Sin and Swoon. A wonderful heartwarming CD that will definitely appeal to the entire family!
