Album Notes
School Library Journal Singin' American Legends, Vol. 2. CD. approx. 47 min. Prod. by Alleyoop Enterprises. Dist. by AV Café. 2008. $15.

K-Gr 5—Alleyoop (Allan F. Hirsch) aptly combines his 30 years of experience as an educator, storyteller, and performer in this collection of 20 original and historical ballads. His rich, gentle voice calls to mind the folk sounds of Burl Ives as he relates the stories of individuals and events, including historical figures such as Lewis and Clark and Harriet Tubman, and tall tale characters such as River Boat Annie and John Henry. Traditional songs such as "Froggy Went Courtin'," "Old Dan Tucker," and "There Was an Old Lady" are included as well as scary tales like "Boogie Woman" and "Ghost of John." Alleyoop's vocals clearly tell each story and are supported by a variety of instruments. A solid compilation to support classes studying tall tales and folk music.—Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL

He’s a storyteller, historian, poet, riddler, puppeteer, musician, singer, teacher, and just a plain ol’ dad.

He is known as a Walking Talking Children’s Museum!

He entertains young folks and old folks. He brings ancient games and toys, and more whistles than you can shake a stick at. He plays mountain dulcimer, guitars, ukuleles and “The Limberjack." He knows more songs, stories and riddles than anybody else his size or shape. He’s got a story or song for every occasion. If you were going on a trip with a whole lot of kids, you would want him with you! You can find him at www.alleyoop.us.
