Smithsonian Folkways



Now Available: Music for Children, Music by Children


Available starting today, Smithsonian Folkways invites listeners of all-ages to revel and participate in the colorful world of children's music that our catalog has to offer with our new compilation, Music for Children, Music by Children. Children sing because they must. Music is learned in the earliest years of life and remains vital thereafter. You'll be presented with not only music designed "for children," created by our most celebrated artists like Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and Elizabeth Mitchell, but also "by children," featuring the unique ways children express and understand themselves and the world through song.
