Last year, I was browsing through children’s music when I came across the Okee Dokee Brothers “Can You Canoe” album. It was highly rated and won the 2013 Grammy for Best Children’s Album, so I thought we might enjoy it. Since purchasing that album, we have enjoyed listening to it quite frequently. I was excited to hear that the Okee Dokee Brothers would be releasing their second “Adventure Album” on May 20th, titled “Through the Woods”.
Like their first album, this one is inspired by time spent connecting with the outdoors. “Can You Canoe” was inspired by a month-long journey down the Mississippi River, and “Through the Woods” brings us an album full of wonderful Appalachian music.
Not only does this album have a music CD, there is also a 40-minute DVD that follows the Okee Dokee Brothers on their outdoor adventures and more.
The DVD not only has music and adventures, but a lot about the evolution of the album, learning about Appalachian music, and more. I was intrigued by lots of great locations to other really eye-catching camera work. This DVD inspires you to want to get out and have your own adventures.
There are 15 great tracks on this CD, which include lots of original songs, classic songs (like a remake of “Big Rock Candy Mountain”), and lots of great guest performers. There are many different sounds, including fiddlesticks, pots, pans, auto-harp, bones, clogs, mouth bow, gut-string banjo, washboard, jaw harp, mountain dulcimer, fiddle, hambone, bass harmonica, and even whistling!
