I attended the virtual Children’s Music Network (CMN) listening party on October 19, 2021. It gives voting members for the Grammys a chance to hear some samples from the artists that have submitted for the Children’s Music Category. Unfortunately, an emergency took me away half way through the session. However, I did get to hear some fine music from the likes of Sonia De Los Santos and her album ESPERANZA, Pierce Freelon and his album BLACK TO THE FUTURE, FAMILY TREE by Fyütch and some cool cuts by Esther Crow, that’s right Crow and her husband’s name is Dan Crow. What a collective noun group we could be!
Anyhow, it was inspiring music and continues to demonstrate what a vital creative bunch is out there creating music for kids and families.
