Putting On The Old Folk’s Clothes!

Thanks for sharing this post!

“Putting On The Old Folk’s Clothes,” and “The Milkmaid and Her Pail” are two original songs from my most recent album, Putting On The Old Folk’s Clothes, 2008. I only chose my favorite pioneer children’s songs for this collection, songs that were popular with the school groups I worked with at Old Red Museum of Dallas History and Culture, as well as Dallas Heritage Village, and outdoor museum in the heart of the city. Over an eight-year period I taught Texas Pioneer songs and dances, along with instrument-making techniques, to hundreds of children.

The Milkmaid and Her Pail is an original song based on an Aesop Fable you may remember. It’s the origin of the saying, “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch!”
