Video Title:
Ella Jenkins - "I Know a City Called Okeechobee" [Live at The Music Center at Strathmore 2006]
Description:
In this video, Ella Jenkins sings her song "I Know a City Called Okeechobee" in front of a sold-out crowd at the Music Center at Strathmore in 2006. The performance was part of a concert event where luminaries in the folk and children's music genre, such as Pete Seeger and Sweet Honey in the Rock, paid tribute to Ella's career and legacy. The concert was inspired by the 2004 GRAMMY winning Smithsonian Folkways recording 'cELLAbration: A Tribute to Ella Jenkins,' available on CD, DVD, and digital.
