About the CD: Songs from around the world and about the world and songs in different languages. This CD includes all the songs from David Grover's first two kids tapes together on one big special album. Great for classrooms! Perfect for kids 3-10 yrs. About the Artist: David Grover writes, performs, and records music for children and adults. He began playing the clarinet at age 8 and quickly moved to the guitar, which he taught himself to play by the age of 11. After many years in both the Rock and Roll and Classical music worlds, David formed 'Shenandoah', an acoustic country-rock band, which joined singer Arlo Guthrie in 1975. From 1975 to 1981 David was Arlo's lead guitarist and arranger, traveling throughout all 50 states and around the world. In this capacity, he played with such musical greats as John Denver, Willie Nelson, Richie Havens, Country Joe McDonald, and Pete Seeger. David also arranged and performed on many of Arlo's albums. After many years playing for grown ups and traveling around the world, David took a break to raise his daughter Jessie, and to concentrate on songwriting. What he didn't know was that he would fall in love with playing for children and families. In time, David wrote more and more kids' songs, and began a very succesful career doing concerts for families and children, becoming friends with the kids and parents who came to hear his fun and uplifting music for kids. He discovered that he had a lot to teach children about music and about getting along with each other and with the world. Eventually, he made his first tape for these kids - 'Kids Mean the World To Us'. David Grover has been to a lot of places and played a lot of music since that time 10 years ago, but his messages and his love of kids have remained the same. From the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to New York City to the White House, kids all over America have enjoyed and learned from David and his music. As he keeps touring and playing, and as he expands his audience through television and other media, we all hope that even more kids and families will hear the message that We All Can Make A Difference!!
