Review: American Lullaby

Various Artists
“American Lullaby”
(Ellipsis Arts)

In this compilation, Ellipsis Arts gathers together America’s finest voices to sing its lullabies. Everything fits with sleepy-time, even when it is unexpected, such as “Resophonic Lullaby” by The Moonlights on Hawaiian steel guitar and “Home on the Range” with extra verses by folk figure and champion yodeler Bill Staines. Meanwhile, Maria Muldaur is on hand for “Prairie Lullaby” and bluegrass belle Kathy Kallick delivers Woody Guthrie’s “Hobo’s Lullaby”.
