Elizabeth Mitchell - "Sleep Eye" [Official Music Video]
Description:
Watch the official music video for Elizabeth Mitchell's "Sleepy Eye" a song from her Smithsonian Folkways album 'Little Seed: Songs for Children by Woody Guthrie.' "The rhythm of this song is perfect for bouncing a baby on your shoulder and lulling them to sleep. Thank you, Woody!" - Elizabeth Mitchell Director: Tom Schnaidt 'Little Seed: Songs for Children by Woody Guthrie' available on CD and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/elizabeth-mitchell/little-seed-songs-for-children-by-woody-guthrie/music/album/smithsonian Bandcamp: https://elizabethmitchell.bandcamp.com/album/little-seed 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.
