Gifted singer-songwriter Sarah Lee Guthrie brings charm, freshness, and feeling to her debut recording of music for children and families. On this album, she is joined by her husband, Johnny Irion, their two young daughters, and a host of other family and friends including Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Tao Rodriguez Seeger. Guthrie presents throughtful yet playful recordings of traditional songs and new compositions, including three songs featuring lyrics by Woody Guthrie never before put to music, and eight songs written by Sarah Lee and family.
Go Waggaloo continues the Guthrie family chain of song-making begun by Sarah's grandfather, Woody Guthrie. With song notes written by Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion, a touching introduction from Arlo Guthrie, and notes from children's music expert Stefan Shepherd, Go Waggaloo bridges generations of music lovers by combining traditional folk music with contemporary lyrics and instrumentation.
Listening to Go Waggaloo one can hear a drum machine, songs about Xboxes and DVDs, and a spur of the moment song recorded on a cell phone by the Guthrie family on a road trip. This CD is recommended for children of all ages and their parents.
