Tall Tales, Whoppers and - live at the New England Folk Festival
Label: Light Publications
Even if you have time to read stories to your kid day in and day out, sometimes it's nice to leave it to the experts. That's where Mark Binder comes in. This album captures the spontaneity of Binder's live performance, presenting a cross section of tales that range from the classic ("Paul Bunyan Meets Babe The Blue Ox") to the unexpected ("The Challah That Ate Chelm"). Binder's elastic delivery brings the stories to life: he flips from voice to voice, pacing the stories to keep squirming kids entranced.
