Booking, Unbound Marc Black - American Children Music,
Other
I’ve developed a program that’s perfect for kids and grownups alike. I began developing it when my kids were very young. I had the idea to create a CD that featured lots of the great musicians singing songs their parents had sung to them, or that they sang to their kids. And, some cases, wrote for their kids. The resulting CD, American Children, was honored as the ‘American Library Association’s Best Children’s CD of the year.’ The CD featured performances by Richie Havens, Taj Mahal, John Sebastian, Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach), Maria Muldaur and many more. The stuff I write about in this genre ranges from a tune about Ziggy, my wacky wire haired fox terrier, to my love of coffee and baseball, and the importance of picking up litter. I also mix in songs from my childhood (in the sixties) for a program the family can all enjoy. In addition, I’m also available for expressive songwriting classes with kids of all ages. I love doing this!
