Special Guest: Making Moosic with Anna Moo
If you haven't yet heard singer-songwriter Anna Moo, you're in for a real treat! Anna's recordings are distinguished by her rich bluesy vocals, the excellence of her musical accompaniment (including husband Terry Moo on trumpet), and the sheer exuberance and inventiveness of her songs. The four songs included in this issue of Shoofly are from Anna's two award-winning CDs, Making Moosic and Anna Moo Crackers. Anna Moo describes her work and inspiration this way: "I grew up on a small farm in California, and later my family moved overseas. While living in Chile, I began playing guitar and songwriting. During my late teens, I played professionally in nightclubs and coffee houses. It was the birth of my two children a few years ago that provided a new and exciting direction for my work as a children's songwriter and entertainer." Making Moosic was awarded a Parents' Choice Gold Award (1993) and was cited as a top audio pick in TV Guide, Parent Magazine, and Child Magazine. Anna Moo Crackers earned a 1995 Parents' Choice Gold Award, a 1995 NAPPA Gold Award (National Association of Parenting Publications of America), a 1995 ALA Award (American Library Association-Notable Recording), and was awarded "Best Musical Recording" by the American Academy of Children's Entertainment.
