Album Notes
We've been collecting kid songs for years, performing them for our kids, our neighbors, school assemblies, and families in San Diego's Balboa Park. Here's the cream of the crop. Everybody should find something to connect to, be it the familiarity of Comin' Round the Mountain, the physicality Jump Up Jonny, or the silliness of Ain't No Bugs on Me. A few lessons are served up (Vegetables, Food Rules Dude) but not shoved down anyone's throat. Most of these songs work for our adult audiences as well, so we hope that the album can be a shared family experience in the car or family room (or bath). We've let you listen to the whole album on CDBaby so you can be comfortable it's something that will enhance your family's time together. Enjoy!

Richie Strell join the project in process and added his award-winning harmonica parts to several songs, put some smoking spoons on Comin' Round the Mountain, and sang lead on This Land. Annie Rettic contributes her classically-trained voice and fiddle throughout, including a beautiful lead on Puff the Magic Dragon and her original Leprechaun song. JT Moring wrote a lot of the songs and played a lot of the instruments, and herded the project into existence. Our kids have gotten their use out of these songs, and now we're passing them on to the next generation. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Here are some of the instruments we pulled out for this project. Acoustic guitar, banjo, fiddle (custom 5-string viola). Mandolin, ukulele, bass guitar. Harmonicas, penny and slide whistles, pan pipes, and kazoo. A little organ. And we went a bit crazy with percussion: South American drum, tambourine, cajon, Easter-egg shakers, bamboo scraper and clickers, spoons, rocks from the yard, a pot lid, a rattle made from some animal toenails, washboard, and hand claps. Feel free to add your own.

Kids Ride Free is a joyride for all!
JT Moring has worked non stop producing this wonderful collection of children's songs and songs of Americana. The fruits of his labor on obvious on every selection. 5 Stars all the way!

Mary Moeller

delightful collection of children's tunes!
Kids Ride Free is an innocent and fun filled collection of children's songs from old and new. A lover of the folk music genre myself, it's easy to appreciate the on point arrangements and great talents of JT Moring, Annie Rettic and Richie Strell. Listening to these songs will certainly bring out your inner child. By the time I got to Puff The Magic Dragon, Annie Rettics powerful and loving vocalizations brought me to tears in the lovely remembrance of how powerful and important this song was to my younger years. What a gift for our children to have this beautiful, fun collection of songs!!!

Best travel CD for my 3 three year old.
What I really love about this CD is how kid friendly the music is for young children. Hands down, my 3 year old loves "Old Dan Tucker" and asks me to play it over and over. He also enjoys "Ain't No Bugs on Me " and "This Land is Your Land" where we pretend there is a train coming down the track. It's good for imaginative play with songs like "Leprechaun in the Garden" where we go looking for that elusive leprechaun. I can promise you won't be disappointed with this collection of songs.
