Doug Lipman
Keep On Shaking

Here are join-right-in tales from our American traditions - both Anglo- and African-American. Whether the main characters are Rabbit, an old woman, or a modern child, they persist against fear, frustration or just plain silliness to get what they want. The songs range from whimsical banjo songs like "Old Doc Jones" to "Great Big Dog," a deeply relaxing lullaby.

Doug Lipman told his first story when he was teaching in a school for emotionally disturbed children. It was then that he first noticed the power of stories to inspire, empower and guide the listener. As a pre-school teacher and certified Kodaly music teacher, Lipman combined stories with songs and saw that music enhances the healing power of story, transforming the listener and helping them reconnect with their true essence.

Doug has performed stories and songs all over the U.S., in Canada, and in New Zealand for children, adults, and families. Using his background as a former math and science teacher - his undergraduate major was mathematics - he also developed storytelling programs on nature and ecology.
