ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1ST PLACE WINNER, TRADITIONAL SINGING, 2006 TOPANGA BANJO FIDDLE CONTEST AND FOLK FESTIVAL

"We keep singing along to Monster Truck weeks later!" -- Parent from a June 2005 live concert

"I cannot count the number of people who thoroughly enjoyed both listening and singing along to your sessions -- it is a day that I will remember and cherish." Hosts of Museums of the Arroyo Day from a pair of May 2005 concerts

"Four CDs please -- I want to share this with our friends." Parents at a recent concert

This album shares songs from Gigi Johnson & Mike Salas's folk music live cable TV show in the San Gabriel Valley area of Southern California. Join Gigi & Mike, as well as some charming kids, for in-studio sing-alongs that combine music from the 1700s through 1920s. Some songs will be known and loved by adults; others are new and old favorites of kids.

Gigi & Mike have been amazed that families just don't seem to sing as much any more. The songs we grew up with aren't in their lives, except perhaps at church or Scout camp. Parents aren't as comfortable as older generations were in singing with their kids. Schools are finding less and less time in the school week to introduce songs for teaching about language arts, social culture, and history.

So Gigi & Mike's sing-along songs are trying to bring folk singing back into the family and back into children's lives. And with "Crunchy PartyMix," Gigi & Mike are glad to share that adventure with you, even if you don't live in the Los Angeles Basin to come to some of their frequent family-fun hootenannies for young and old.

It's a "live" album - of kids songs - all the classics are here
A live kids album - what a great concept - they have all the classics on this one and you really feel the energy of the audience- my only criticism is that the songs seem too short ... I only hope I can find out when the next taping is for the sequel
