Summary

Summary

Award-winning family music pioneer John McCutcheon continues his Grammy-nominated "Four Seasons" cycle with "Autumnsongs". Once again John serves up a heaping helping of music, fun & insight. He remembers watching the World Series with his Dad, being the new kid in school, welcoming a noisy new sister into the family & the quiet reflection of a Thanksgiving Day gathering. He honors farmworkers' leader Cesar Chavez, offers up a new Labor Day anthem & even includes a recipe for s'mores. The music is world class, the songs are unforgettable & adults are as welcome as children. Prove to yourself that autumn is more than a brief stop between summer & winter.


Summary

Nothing's what you expect it to be on AUTUMNSONGS. McCutcheon is known as a first rate folk guitarist, but he underplays both his guitar skills and his folkie side in favor of full band arrangements featuring lots of electric instruments. This is ostensibly a children's album, but if you weren't listening intently to the skew of the lyrics, you'd just think it was a straight-up contemporary singer-songwriter effort. This recording continues McCutcheon's seasonal series, and it does contain songs about Halloween, Thanksgiving and such, but it seems to venture far beyond the theme. AUTUMNSONGS is ultimately a family album rather than just a kids' recording.
