"Good morning! Probably the most comprehensive folksong book available is "Rise Up Singing" containing 1200 songs, including a children's section. Since there are so many songs, a single CD is not available, obviously, but you may…"
"One comment about listing with Storyteller.net. I just renewed my premium listing because you only have to book one gig with Sean's site and you make your money back so it is well worth it! I always ask folks where they heard about me when I…"
I have a background in teaching too! I am a puppeteer that incorporates songs into all of my shows (mini-musicals) my shows are really all about the participation and seems like we have a lot in common. I wish you weren't so far away I would love to see a show.
Sounds like your process might be making more progress than mine. I work full time as a kindergarten teacher and lately, that has taken up much of my time with spring projects and IEPC meetings. I have managed to record two tracks of guitar for a "back up" of a song for one part of my CD. I have fewer gigs planned for this summer than last summer, so that may also help with my time management and getting things done. It's all a matter of goal setting and proper planning. I just love this site, because reading what other people are doing really motivates me energizes me, and keeps me going when I might feel more like taking a nap!! Thanks for checking in on me. It's great to hear that you are also making step by step progress. Next time, I will check in on you:)
I just wondered how the CD process is coming for you? I go into the studio this coming Tuesday to record my first CD. I have worked very hard to get to this point - rehearsing, photo shoot, etc., etc., etc.... I can't wait to get it done.
Thanks for the warm greetings. Over the last few years since I took my part time telling to a full-time status - I have enjoyed corresponding and learning from new storytelling friends. I love this format where I don't have to worry about being spammed - where I can trust the individuals writing to me! I also like seeing the pictures - to help me get to know folks better when I attend national events.
