Voice of the People: A History of American Folk Music

  • Dave Fry - Voice of the People

  • Dave Fry - Voice of the People


Dave Fry turns folk selections—both widely known and new to kids’ ears—into true adventures. He sings of wild animal excursions and at-home thrills like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, moving with ease from the downright silly “I Want to Be a Dog” to the joyfully rockin’ “Splish Splash.” Students learn about the historical role of folk music throughout American history and understand how this creative art form was a mobilizing force in our society. The concert is so much fun that kids don’t realize they’re getting a history lesson too!
