Lomax: The Hound of Music, the acclaimed PBS Kids show, based on John M. Feierabend's First Steps in Music series, breaks new ground for its great songs, engaging story, and educational content. The show's sound track includes dozens of classic American roots music songs, selected for their usefulness in helping children develop their "musical intelligence." Muliple-instrument virtuoso Larry Campbell, famous for his work with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Rosanne Cash, and Sheryl Crow (among many others) doubled as musical director and chief instrumentalist, and his brilliant work is supremely entertaining, not only for kids, but for adult music fans, too.
