Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

The Songs We Sang at the Marymount Farmer’s Market on 11/19/2016

Posted on: November 20, 2016

We sang more than 50 songs in the two hours between 10 and 12, some of them even repeated.  I had wonderful time.  Thanks to all the families who stopped by to sing with me.  Thanks to Sandi, Stephen, and Robert for hosting Sing Books (more thanks in the note at the end of this list).  Thanks, too, to Eloise for her wonderful help before, during, and after the performances.

Here’s what we sang, listed in no particular order:

A Note From Emily About Sing Books at Farmer’s Markets

This year gave me a new opportunity, to Sing Books at a couple local farmer’s markets.  I was nervous at first, wondering how I could make Sing Books work in this context, since I’d always performed Sing Books in an intimate environment for a set amount of time. Performing at farmers markets seemed more like busking as people just walked by on their way to and from shopping for locally grown produce and handmade items.  Turns out, Sing Books works great in this context.  I can create my own intimate environment any place I want, kids can pick books for us to sing together, and groups can come and go as their time allows.

This was the last Marymount Farmer’s Market until May, and the Westover Farmer’s Market, thought it will be open for business, won’t have performers until Spring.

It has been so much fun to have the opportunity to expand my Sing Books horizons, sing en plein air, and share Sing Books with families that don’t attend the schools or libraries I regularly visit.  Many thanks to Sandi Chesrown, Stephen Cunningham, and Robert Swennes for their welcoming support.

I also have to give a big thank you to my daughter Eloise Gleichenhaus who has helped me at many of my performances with set up and tear down and during the performances by holding books when I play guitar and putting the books, CDs and fun instruments back together when a song is finished. It all amounts to a huge amount of assistance and she’s been a real trooper and a fantastic help.
