Track List


  • Meet Me On the Corner - One of the most played folk songs on the radio, it's always our opener
  • Diggers' Song - A garden-based protest - all the best ones are!
  • Factory - Our version of a wonderfully under appreciated Bruce Springsteen number
  • Wabash Wizard - A fun wild west inspired mashup that is one of our most requested songs
  • Sleepy-Eyed John - Evokes the dusty highways of the southern half of the USA
  • Row, Row, Row, Your Boat - Featuring guest vocals from some passing kids; this is the Bagpuss classic for a new generation
  • Louie Louie - Our version of this classic song won't get investigated by the FBI - you can hear every word!
  • The Wild Goose - A beautiful traditional song mixed with something more contemporary
  • While My Guitar Gently Weeps - They said a song about a guitar couldn't be done a cappella - you can decide if they were right!
  • Mad World - One of the most iconic songs of the 1980s gets The Skeptics treatment - a real showstopper
  • Dixie Wailin' - The best funeral song ever heard on kids' TV - this is a cult classic. Have a listen here
  • Space Oddity - Our tribute to the late David Bowie, with added effects!
  • Ladybugs' Picnic - What better way to end an album than a counting song about bugs telling jokes?
