Download "On a Holiday" by Ella Jenkins

Posted on: Feb 28, 2012 @ 11:58:04 am

On a Holiday performed by Ella Jenkins can be downloaded for free---just in time to add a little extra joy to that fabulous holiday season, Spring Break!

Ella Jenkins thinks that people should sing in every season, and this recording can help us all do just that. Here is a lively sing-along, recorded at a summer program in Chicago, Illinois, in 1969. Enthusiastic children join world-famous performer Ella Jenkins on twelve wonderful songs in a variety of styles, from traditional spirituals to Caribbean, blues, and rock ‘n’ roll. The recording features Ella Jenkins’s baritone ukulele, drums, harmonica, guitar, and rhythm sticks. Especially suited for children 3-9 years old, their parents, teachers, and playmates.

Alexander Street and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings offers this free music download from the online collection Smithsonian Global Sound® for Libraries. This download is freely available, regardless of whether or not UCF subscribes to the collection.
