Putumayo Kids presents lively and fresh renditions of America’s treasure
trove of classic sing-along songs. Kicking off the fun is the traditional
“She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain” performed by Johnny Bregar.
Country-Western artist Aaron Watson delivers a sunny version of the classic
“Blue Skies.” Other featured artists are some of the top names in family
music: Dan Zanes performs the bluegrassy folk tune “Saro Jane,” Elizabeth
Mitchell sings “Keep on the Sunny Side,” Buck Howdy delivers a cowboy-style
“You Are My Sunshine,” Victor Johnson provides a spare and sweet rendition
of “This Little Light of Mine,” Randy Kaplan covers Bob
Dylan’s “Forever Young”(originally written for his own child), and Phil Rosenthal and his band invite everyone to sing along with Woody Guthrie’s classic “This Land Is Your Land.” American
