"I’ve listened to Adirondack Adventure many times, and I love it!!! It’s creative, interpretive, educational, fun, and fresh. I love that many of the songs are about the really cool animals that often get ignored. I could see myself using these songs during a nature interpretive program." Katrine Dickau, artist/musician/educator, Hollis NH.
"I found this musical adventure absolutely charming! The musicians have organized twelve original songs into a day-long family trip to the Adirondack Mountains, with both adult and children's voices ... a whimsical celebration of nature with subjects ranging from otter to loons to bats and a beaver, with delightful sound effects that bring the listener into the woods and along the stream. Our three-year-old granddaughter loves this CD, and I love listening to it with her because of the sophisticated musical touches: interesting key changes, clever lyrics and a variety of instruments – from banjo to glockenspiel and lots in between." Cherry Sokoloski, Fort Collins, CO.
