Episode #242 – Kare Strong

Episode #242 – Kare Strong

“Kare Strong began her creative life as a poet but it wasn’t until she discovered songwriting that she found her creative home. “My songs are tender stories,” says Kare.  “They are woven from the innocence of children, faeries, and the beautiful natural world, then sprinkled with joy, poetry and imagination.”  Her family music celebrates her deep admiration and appreciation for animals, nature and children.  Her association with Josh began as student to his teacher and their relationship as collaborative peers has created magic.”  I loved talking to Kare about everything from her musical partnership with Josh Goforth to Faeries and so much more!  Be sure to check out her song ‘The Cherry Tree’.

Episode #241 – Young Folkies

It’s an international edition of the Good Stuff Kids Podcast this week as I had a conversation with Marissa from Young Folkies:  “Young Folkies is a regular live music session for babies and toddlers (0-5yrs) based in North East London run by professional musician and singer Marisa (Marisa is a parent too!).  Marisa plays folky, acoustic versions of nursery rhymes and original new songs. Puppets and toys only add to the sing-along fun.”  I love getting the opportunity to talk to people who are not in the United States and trying to get a feel for what’s going on for kids and families in other places.  Make sure to listen all the way to the end of the episode to hear the song ‘Be You’.

It’s brand new Grammy winner Jon Samson sharing his background and the story behind his amazing record ‘Ageless Songs for the Child Archetype’.  This is a great conversation.  “As a Musical Therapist, Jon worked extensively through the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music for children on the autism spectrum. He’s been guest lecturing at Columbia University and other higher education facilities on his approach to working with special needs and how it relates to the general population.  As a Performer/Producer, Jon’s award winning family music has been featured in Parenting Magazine, Time Out New York Kids, USA Today, and apparently other civilizations from other planets love Jon’s music too.  As an artist, Jon produced music for Sounds True audio programs by world renowned teachers Caroline Myss and Andrew Harvey.  As an audio engineer, Jon’s name can be found in the four time Oscar nominated film, Beasts Of The Southern Wild.  As a goofball, Jon entertains at parties and performs with his live band.”
