Build and Sing: Songs for Architects, Builders and Planners

Build and Sing: Songs for Architects, Builders and Planners

Recorded live in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1989, folk troubadour Joe Glazer presents a show of songs and commentary specifically designed for an audience of architects, builders, planners, and craftsmen. Opening with the traditional song “Working on a Building,” Glazer sings songs by Lead Belly (“The Boll Weevil Song”), Buck Owens (“I Wouldn’t Live in New York City” and “No Milk and Honey in Baltimore”), Malvina Reynolds (“Little Boxes” and “God Bless the Grass”), and Utah Phillips (“Larimer Avenue”), along with traditional songs and his own compositions. Throughout his performance, Glazer invites his audience to join in on sing-a-long songs.
