Elizabeth Mitchell: Little Seed....Review & Give Away!


Are you looking for a great new listen for your commute?  I have a wonderful, soothing, folksy pick for you today....Elizabeth Mitchell's Little Seed is a joy for the ears of both you and your children.  Here is the scoop...


Elizabeth Mitchell's Little Seed: Songs for Children by Woody Guthrie, featuring re-imagined renditions of 13 kid-friendly Guthrie classics, is now available to purchase in CD or digital download format.

The only CD of Guthrie’s children’s songs coinciding with the Woody Guthrie Centennial, Little Seed pays tribute to the legendary songwriter's uncanny ability to inhabit both the perspective of a loving, protective parent and the voice of a freewheeling child. The album includes thoughtful versions of children’s songs “Riding in My Car,” “Grassy Grass Grass,” and “Bling Blang.” Mitchell also shares her version of “This Land Is Your Land,” Guthrie’s signature song that many people consider a second national anthem.

As always, she is joined on the recording by family (husband Daniel Littleton and daughter Storey) and friends, including Amy Helm, daughter of the late Levon Helm, pillars of the American acoustic music scene Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, and Ruthy Ungar of Mike and Ruthy and formerly of the Mammals.

"Woody Guthrie’s songs for children are a gift to all of us. They are a part of me, part of my family," says Mitchell. "Thank you, Woody, for giving us this beautiful experience and so many others like it. We can feel this profound musical joy anytime, anywhere, with you in our spirits and your songs in our hearts."

Little Seed is her third Smithsonian Folkways album, following You Are My Little Bird (2006) and Sunny Day (2010), and features eight newly recorded tracks and five previously issued favorites.

Woodie Guthrie's children's songs are pure treasures and Elizabeth Mitchell's beautiful, pure voice is the perfect messenger for  his powerful words.  The songs are delightful and are not only for children.  This is a CD the whole family will enjoy.  Who doesn't love the song This Land is Your Land?? That is one I loved from when I was a child and now my kiddos are big fans too.  Fans of Woodie Guthrie, young and old, should have Little Seed in their collection!  Pick up your copy today....
