This Is Your Year: Children Songs by Ella Jenkins

Dubbed “The First Lady of Children’s Music,” Ella Jenkins has released an astounding forty albums on Smithsonian Folkways since her first recording, Call-and-Response: Rhythmic Group Singing, in 1957.

Produced to help celebrate The International Year of the Child in 1979, this brief recording features Ella, sometimes supported by children, performing in her customary cheerful and tuneful manner.
