About the Album
From best-selling children’s recording artist and preschool television favorite Laurie Berkner, Laurie Berkner’s Favorite Classic Kids’ Songs includes 51 well-loved, traditional children’s songs, plus six bonus tracks of favorite Laurie Berkner originals.
While beautifully capturing the up-to-date sound of The Laurie Berkner Band that fans know and love, Laurie Berkner’s Favorite Classic Kids’ Songs is the only album Laurie has ever released that is comprised almost exclusively of traditional songs.
Says Laurie Berkner, “I grew up with many of these songs, and I’m sure parents and grandparents will remember a lot of them from their own childhoods. I’m excited about sharing these classics with kids who may not have heard them before and also introducing my versions of songs that might already be family favorites. In the true folk tradition, I’ve added some of my own lyrics and my own spin to many of these traditional songs. I’ve kept a folk or rock feel for most of the numbers, with a little reggae thrown in here and there for fun!”
