“The Mushroom House” is a collection of 16 traditional folk songs. While this tape is very popular with children, it is not just a “kid’s tape” as it is musically interesting for adults as well. Seabury accompanies himself with a variety of instruments and is joined by a host of guest musicians, including children who sing with him on six of the songs. A lyric song booklet is included.
