As comforting as an old patchwork quilt, these beloved folksongs are presented in charming choral arrangements with guitar, harmonica, accordion, bass and piano by Philip Brunelle and the 32-voice VocalEssence Ensemble Singers.

No matter what ethnic backgrounds we come from, we share a wonderful heritage in the folk songs of the United States — an amazing range of songs that date from before the Revolutionary War. Whether passed along by tradition or composed by a known songwriter, all of these songs have a melody that you can hum, sing and remember! Thanks to Norman Luboff, Edwin Fissinger, Jack Halloran, and the dynamic team of Alice Parker & Robert Shaw, we have wonderful arrangements that capture the atmosphere of each in choral settings. Perhaps you already know all of these folk songs. But if you don’t — no problem. Listen to this album and you’ll learn to love them all! — Philip Brunelle
