Children’s

Roots & Branches

Growing up, the music of our ancestral countries was kept alive though songs our parents taught us. Learning of the sacrifices and triumphs of our ancestors has helped us feel a strong connection to them, which we hope to pass down to future generations. Hence this project was born. We dedicate these songs to those for whom the album was named—our own Roots & Branches.

We dedicate this album to our Roots: A concerted effort was made to preserve the original melodies that some of our ancestors might have known. We want this album to be a celebration of their lives and a tribute to their legacy.

We also dedicate this album to our Branches: Music is a timeless way to preserve family history and pass it down to the generations who will follow. May each new addition know they have an eternal place on our family tree.

Throughout the creation of this album, we have felt guided both musically and spiritually. We feel a connection to those who have come before and those who will follow. As cousins, we have loved making this a family project. Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed time, talents and knowledge to make this album a worthy gift to our Roots & Branches.

Love, Natalie & Amy

A Special thank you to all those who contributed.
