Bullfrog Jumped, and Bethanne

Last year, the Alabama Folklife Commission issued “Bullfrog Jumped” – they describe the cd as:

a collection of songs sung by mothers, grandmothers, school teachers, babysitters, and children across Alabama. During the summer of 1947 they sat at their kitchen tables and on their front porches in front of a portable disc recorder and enthusiastically shared their favorite folksongs with Professor Byron Arnold, a “songcatcher.”


Shug and I listen and sing along to the songs on Bullfrog Jumped during our morning time every day, and we love it. There are 42 different songs! Samples are available to listen to at Amazon here. The artwork is by Bethanne Hill.
