Local Songstress Releases Sing-Along Album

Linda Bassick's weekly Friday Morning Sing-Along at Burlington's Radio Bean attracts legions of local kids — and their parents — with the sing-song strains of children's classics such as "Puff the Magic Dragon," "The Green Grass Grew All Around" and "Move Over for Marty." These beloved tunes and many more can be found on Bassick's recently released 13-song album, friday morning sing-along, which was recorded live at Radio Bean last year. Bassick is best known to grown-ups as a member of the local bands Mellow Yellow and Steady Betty, and for her folksy solo pursuits. She's an accomplished singer and guitarist and applies veteran chops to each song on the record — matched only by her veteran chops as a mom of two sons. The whimsical looseness of tunes such as "Oh Susannah" and "Take Me Riding" is bolstered by the pleasant, chirping sounds of singing children in the background. Musicality abounds, making the record not just fun for kiddos, but, just as importantly, tolerable for parents who'll undoubtedly have to spin it on repeat.

Friday Morning Sing-Along with Linda Bassick & Friends happens every Friday at Radio Bean in Burlington, 11 a.m. Free. Bassick's album of the same name is available on CD Baby for $9.99.
