Ted Jacobs' Poetry CDs

I admit that I expected these CDs to all sound like lullabies, and while some songs are soft and soothing, others are lively and fun! They really have a lovely combination of acoustic music. You will hear all sorts of instruments: guitars, violins, penny whistle, accordion, piano, dulcimer, mandolin, bass, uillean pipes, and more. The vocals are a mix of men and women's voices. Some songs have a very folksy sound, while others have a Scottish lilt. The lyrics all come from classic poetry. A Child's Garden of Songs (16 poems, about 37 minutes) and Back to the Garden (12 poems, about 29 minutes) are all by Robert Louis Stevenson. The Days Gone By CD (11 poems, about 37 minutes) includes poems by a mix of American poets including James Whitcomb Riley, Edgar Allen Poe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Emily Dickinson and Eugene Field. Topics include things that would appeal to children, such as summertime, rain, pirates, the moon, a hayloft, a farm, a kingdom, bedtime, adventure, trees and the wind. The poems would be lovely to listen to in the car, during quiet play time, while children are doing art, or just anytime. ~Sara
