Jefferson 3rd Graders

Jefferson Elementary 3rd Graders have put together a rootin’ tootin’ American Folk Song program for the world to see, singing and swingin’ to traditional songs like Rock-A My Soul, Chasin’ the Crawdad and Old Brass Wagon. The video has been uploaded to youtube, and it’s worth a watch. Jennifer Redfearn, Elementary Music Specialist at Jefferson, and the students put together a great, heel-thumping-worthy show, where the (virtual) audience not only gets a taste of traditional folk songs, but also get to learn more about the evolution of folk music and the influence traditional songs had on the music industry we know today.
