Adirondack Adventure: Loons, Runes and Tunes (Jean Young/Amy Conley)
Come camping with us in the Adirondacks! Hike, paddle, explore! See otters, herons, bats and beavers! Listen to loons and mosquitoes! Sing along to the guitar, banjo, dulcimer, ukulele, xylophone and recorder. Great for camp, car, classroom or home.
This new CD by Amy Conley and Jean Young includes Jean's original songs using varied instruments to promote an awareness of the natural world and some of our fellow creatures on earth such as the otter, snowy egret, great blue heron, beaver, bat, cedar waxwing and mosquitoes! It also features a canoe song, a hiking song and a campfire lullaby.
"I’ve listened to Adirondack Adventure many times, and I love it!!! It’s creative, interpretive, educational, fun, and fresh. I love that many of the songs are about the really cool animals that often get ignored. I could see myself using these songs during a nature interpretive program." Katrine Dickau, artist/musician/educator, Hollis NH.
"I found this musical adventure absolutely charming! The musicians have organized 12 original songs into a day-long family trip to the Adirondacks, with both adult and children’s voices, and the collection is a whimsical celebration of nature. The song subjects range from otter to loon to bats and a beaver, with delightful sound effects that bring the listener into the woods and along the stream. Our three-year-old granddaughter loves this CD, and I love listening to it with her because of the sophisticated musical touches: interesting key changes, clever lyrics and a variety of instruments – from banjo to glockenspiel and lots in between." Cherry Sokoloski, Fort Collins, CO.
