Lloyd H. Miller plays his studio tracks, tells stories about them, and explores the background of the tunes he sings.
On this episode, only the second in his Sing-a-long History Podcast, he focuses on the Underground Railroad songs that appear on Sing-a-long History Vol I: Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! This album is the first volume of the Sing-a-long History series, a collection of albums that use music to teach kids about history. It's an intro to the Civil War, abolitionism, and the Underground Railroad for kids. The other volumes of the series will explore a variety of other historical topics.
This is Part 1 of a two-part Underground Railroad episode.
This podcast is like sitting in a room with Lloyd listening to the album. He'll play a track, talk about it, pull out his guitar and sing a related song that comes to mind, play another track, talk about his inspiration for writing it...
