Play parties are a traditional form of entertainment for children. Before the adults would have a dance in pioneer times, the children would get together with a leader to share songs and dances they all knew. Children still love to sing and dance, and I will be sharing the old songs with them in my new, historically researched and authentically presented show, Gather 'Round Children: America's Folk Song Heritage.
Visit my Gather 'Round Children: America's Folk Song Heritage website for more details about the show, a song list, my children's music professional biography, and information about how my show supports Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). I will also post upcoming public performances here.|
