In this adventurous and lyrical recording for children and families we are taken by the hand and led into a fairyland which is deeply rooted in the real life stories and songs that are a part of our multi-faceted American cultural tradition. Drawing from a musical heritage that includes classical, Irish, Appalachian and New Orleans genres, Leslie Vogel has gathered her own considerable creative forces and combined them with the many talents of highly skilled musician friends and family members to bring out this remarkable collection of original and traditional songs. Of this recording Leslie comments: "Several years ago I started thinking about making a family album. I always sang to my own children at bedtime, but over many years of performing in public these particular songs rarely saw the light of day. It was time to bring them out. As I contemplated this project and ideas for arrangements, instruments and musicians started forming, I realized that I wanted young voices singing with our more seasoned musicians. I asked the members of the Fiddle Orchestra to join us - and they did, with great energy and enthusiasm!"
