Here's what we played at our March variety show at the Knitting Factory yesterday. The show was a big Women's History Month party so we sang about famous women -- and women in our everyday lives.
Audra Tsanos and Jen Milich from AudraRox were there to help us out. We backed them up on a couple of AudraRox tunes, the wonderful traditional song "Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Foot," and "Sisters Marching Strong," a great women's history anthem written by songwriter / poet Jen Waller (who had to miss the show due to a broken leg! feel better, JW!)
We were also excited to have Atticus (a Brooklyn middle schooler) join us to play his mandolin along with his teacher, Ari Dolegowski (AKA Moby Dee). His classmates Charlie, Sam, and Paris were, as usual, our emcees.
We've posted lyrics and sing-a-long videos for most of the Dees songs here. If you want lyrics, search for the song title on this blog. If you want a sing-a-long video, go to www.youtube.com/user/singalongwithlloyd and scroll down through the uploads on the right until you see the song you want.
If there's anything you can't find, write me at thedeedledeedledees AT yahoo DOT com and I'll send you direct links.
