Recorded live at the Smithsonian Folkways offices in July, 2012. Elizabeth Mitchell with Daniel Littleton "The rhythm of this song is perfect for bouncing a baby on your shoulder and lulling them to sleep. Thank you, Woody!" - Elizabeth Mitchell In Little Seed, Elizabeth Mitchell embraces the gentle genius of America's musical bard, Woody Guthrie. The simple yet profound songs he wrote for his young children remind us of how the loving bonds between parent and child endure and are strengthened through music. Joined by family and friends, Elizabeth Mitchell offers us re-imagined renditions of classic Guthrie favorites. Her thoughtful versions pay tribute to Guthrie's uncanny ability to inhabit both the perspective of a loving, protective parent and the voice of a freewheeling child. Features eight newly-recorded tracks and five previously-issued favorites. 13 tracks, 29 minutes, 20-page booklet with photos.
