We like to read books that enhance our folksong studies. Some books set the song texts to music, some give historical background, and some are just plain fun. This list is updated regularly. We hope you find some new favorite songs and books!

The book includes the sheet music at the end. You can find YouTube videos of this version, but we liked the version we linked to above a little better.
