A couple of years ago, I was wondering around a thrift store in San Francisco when I found a lovely little book titled A Treasury of Verse for Little Children selected by M.G. Edgar. It was an old collection, published in 1908. As I perused the poems, it seemed to me that many of them called out to be set to music. That's how this project began.
Meanwhile, my son, a classical guitarist, got interested in lute music. Hearing him practice, I got interested too and started expanding and improvising on fragments of lute tunes I heard him playing.
With this album, I've created a collection of music and poetry that pays homage to our great English literary and musical heritage. Thank You, Pretty Cow is Volume I. I expect I'll be releasing Volume II in the not too distant future.
Meanwhile, as always, it's the goal of Lily Cat Music for Kids to offer beautiful music that both kids and adults love listening to. I hope you and your family love listening to 'Thank You, Pretty Cow.'
As always, I ask you to do me the favor of sharing Dogwood Daughter and Lily Cat Music for Kids with others. I'm an indie artist with no advertising other than word of mouth from kind folks like you. Thank you.
Be Well and Good Luck,
