About the Book
Susan Brumfield is the author of Hot Peas and Barley-O: Children's Songs and Games from Scotland and Over the Garden Wall: Children's Songs and Games from England, as well as First, We Sing! Kodaly-Inspired Teaching for the Music Classroom. She teaches music education at Texas Tech University and lives in Lubbock, Texas.
Folk & Acoustic Music is hosted by Michael Stock and the focus of Folk & Acoustic Music is to create a community to support folk music. Throughout history, folk music has traveled in small circles, passed primarily by singing families who did not know how to write them down. Even today, folk music is obscure and hard to find. Through folk music, our history and culture is revealed in songs and stories. Every Sunday afternoon for 3 hours, WLRN airs the only folk music show in South Florida, which includes interviews and performances with local and national touring artists, and plays music from a collection of over 8000 CDs.
