I ask out of ignorance and for information.
1. What are the great, classic, songs for children from England? I mean I know there are nursery rhymes and so on, but is there an English equivalent of say, Pete Seeger, or Burl Ives, who sang traditional and contemporary (at the time) songs just for kids?
2. Are there current writers/performers of children’s songs in the UK? Who are the best ones? For example in the US They Might Be Giants are hugely (and deservedly) popular for their kids’ stuff.
This question actually comes from Mrs M, who is constantly looking for content for her podcast for kids that is not American. You can listen to her podcast here –
