Hank's Granny, aka Jeanie Murphy, recorded three fun old-time turkey songs with her banjo for us this year, and we thought they were too great to keep to ourselves--especially in a season of giving! Hank had a lot of fun singing this particular Turkey Lurkey song with his fantastic music teacher at school, so he rang his Granny when he got home and they sang it together. We feel so fortunate to have a musical Granny, and Hank has been musical since before he was born. The two of them have been noodling on songs together since he was knee-high to a penny whistle!
"Turkey in the Straw" is an American folk song that first gained popularity in the early 19th century.
"Turkey Lurkey Run So Fast" is a classroom rhyme that Hank has really enjoyed.
"A Turkey Ran Away" is a traditional Appalachian song.
