ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It's music that doesn't sound prefabricated or condescending, tunes that can be enjoyed by all ages even if the target audience is kids.
• Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times

"On this solo album—which isn’t exactly solo, with contributions from more than a dozen local musicians—LoneTones guitarist/banjoist Sean McCollough has crafted an all-around album of children’s music that will also appeal to parents (and even adults who don’t have kids). More than half of the disc’s 16 songs are traditional tunes (“Mole in the Ground,” “I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad,” “The Crawdad Song”), and the same bouncy, old-time hoedown feel extends to McCollough’s original compositions. This Is Our House is enlivened by Greg Horne’s fiddle, Kevin Abernathy’s slide guitar, and Phil Pollard’s various percussive additions, but it’s McCollough’s jubilant, brightly colored vision running through it all that makes the disc a small wonder." - Matthew Everett, Metro Pulse

Sean has been educating and entertaining families and school groups with his energetic shows since the mid 90s. He has been compared to Pete Seeger and John McCutcheon for his use of traditional music and storytelling as well as his charismatic performances. He plays the guitar, banjo and mandolin and draws heavily on the music of the Appalachian Mountains. He mixes world music, original songs, and other contemporary sounds into his performances that are built around audience participation. Sean is also the host of a weekly radio show for kids on WDVX-FM (click on the link to the left to learn more about the show and how you can listen).

Wonderful and Warm !!
My daughter Loves Sean's warm and catchy tunes. His music is great for the whole family and Mommy and Daddy are singing just as loudly as the 4 year old ! The songs have a "old timey" feel to them but are fresh and fun. We love this album and think that those with young ones will too :)

The kids are addicted!
We've loved the live shows and Sean's earlier CD for years (recommend getting that one too!), but this one was a Christmas gift for our 4 year old son, and he listens to it DAILY, while dancing, singing along, or drumming. The older children enjoy it as well, and it is good enough that I tolerate him playing it at a volume so loud, we can hear it all the way downstairs. It's lots of fun for us all!

Great Family Music
Sean's album is really great for the whole family. The lyrics are fun for all ages and the music is intricate and well done. It is appreciated by our 3 yr. old daughter and by my wife and me... Totally worth the money. Great job Sean and Co.!!!
