Laura Veirs Children's Album "Tumble Bee"
After seven albums for adults, acclaimed Portland recording artist Laura Veirs eighth-- Tumble Bee is her first family music album. Laura joined us to perform a few songs off the album which covers a wide range of folk songs, from early 20th century work songs to the ballads of Jimmie Rodgers, Woody Guthrie, Peggy Seeger and Harry Belafonte.
Inspired by the birth of her son and by countless fans who’ve told her over the years how much their kids love her records, Veirs became curious about the history of American children’s music. She and renowned record producer Tucker Martine listened to hundreds of songs from the past several centuries, including Harry Smith’s famous Anthology of American Folk Music.
