This Is Our House
There are extensive liner notes for this album on Sean's website (click on the link to the left). It's music that doesn't sound prefabricated or condescending, tunes that can be enjoyed by all ages even if the target audience is kids. • Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times 'On this solo album-which isn't exactly solo, with contributions from more than a dozen local musicians-LoneTones guitarist/banjoist Sean McCollough has crafted an all-around album of children's music that will also appeal to parents (and even adults who don't have kids). More than half of the disc's 16 songs are traditional tunes ("Mole in the Ground," "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad," "The Crawdad Song"), and the same bouncy, old-time hoedown feel extends to McCollough's original compositions. This Is Our House is enlivened by Greg Horne's fiddle, Kevin Abernathy's slide guitar, and Phil Pollard's various percussive additions, but it's McCollough's jubilant, brightly colored vision running through it all that makes the disc a small wonder.' - Matthew Everett, Metro Pulse Sean has been educating and entertaining families and school groups with his energetic shows since the mid 90s. He has been compared to Pete Seeger and John McCutcheon for his use of traditional music and storytelling as well as his charismatic performances. He plays the guitar, banjo and mandolin and draws heavily on the music of the Appalachian Mountains. He mixes world music, original songs, and other contemporary sounds into his performances that are built around audience participation. Sean is also the host of a weekly radio show for kids on WDVX-FM (click on the link to the left to learn more about the show and how you can listen).
