Fabulous Folk Songbooks

yarrow_folk.jpgI’ve always loved the tradition and timeless calm of folk music, and Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary just released two fabulous songbooks - Favorite Folk Songs and Sleepytime Songs - that no doubt will become family keepsakes. Gorgeously produced, these sturdily bound, prettily illustrated songbooks make learning and appreciating traditional folk tunes easy and fun for the whole family, with printed lyrics and guitar chords for those who wish to strum along, and an accompanying CD to make familiar any unfamiliar tunes. Laurel’s been singing along with these songbooks nonstop (she especially loves Puff, the Magic Dragon), and tonight at 7pm, you can experience the music live with Peter Yarrow at his free performance at Brookline Booksmith.
