Oh, my gosh! This collection of songs from our beloved Farmer Jason and special friends is so much fun. The friends include: REM’s Mike Mills, Alison Brown, The Saw Doctors, Suzy Bogguss, Iris Dement, Webb Wilder, Todd Snider, Tommy Ramone, Jason & The Scorchers and many more. Sixteen original songs range in style from rock to sea shanties and jazz to folk. Farmer Jason takes the kids from the farm to the big world outside. The music encourages all types of activities from walking, canoeing, ice skating, bird watching and exploring the great, big, wonderful world of nature. There is even the bayou boogie. Farmer Jason introduces each song by discussing an activity with one of his all- star friends kicking off a rollicking good ole’ Farmer Jason time! The CD comes with a special DVD including 4 music videos and a beautifully-designed booklet. Nature Jams has won a “5 Doves” Family-Approved Seal from The Dove Foundation.
I’m a little big to be considered a kid, but this engaging collection made me want to get up and go outside!
