Songs of the Seasons
A compact disc celebrating family & community traditions in New Hampshire

Songs of the Seasons CDNew Hampshire is home to a variety of musical traditions, including a wide range of songs. Some represent the early colonial heritage of the state, while others represent newer immigration. On this recording, some of New Hampshire's families, friends, and solo artists share a sampling of tradition-based songs presented to you as a seasonal journey sewn together with a few instrumental tunes. Song lyrics are included in a 24-page booklet.

This recording was produced by the Traditional Arts Program of the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. The project seeks to strengthen community and family values in New Hampshire by bringing the humor, wisdom, and love of language that can be found in traditional songs to a wider audience. We also want to honor the artists and communities who preserve these songs.

  • The Cote Family w/ Wilson Langlois & Robert Choiniere
