The trouble is, most traditional folk music is quite dark, lyrically speaking (when not performed by adorable mice from the 70s). I suppose it reflects our history. I'm a huge fan of the stuff, but you have to listen to a lot of it as you would an album by Eminem or someone, cos by & large the themes are sex & violence.
Suggest some purely instrumental stuff to entertain the dcs.
I and my small ones love the Bagpuss soundtrack and would love to find something similar- traditional folk with whimsical little stories told in clear voices by school ma'am/ friendly old farmer uncle voices and tiny mice. If I can't find any specifically children's music like this, I'll be happy to just find some trad folk like this, fiddles and shanties... thanks!
