Frances England/Family Tree giveaway!

We listen to a lot of music here at the collective, and I'm picky. I persistently avoid exposing the children to anything I'm not willing to hear 357 more times lest they fall in love with it and require that I play track 8 over and over and over until my ears bleed. With that simple requirement, Frances England's first album, Fascinating Creatures, immediately made it into heavy rotation in the kitchen. When I heard that follow-up was coming out I was worried. Could it possibly be as good? I tried not to get my hopes up lest they be dashed, but her second, Family Tree, totally lived up to my expectations. After hearing just the title track, a child's reflections on a sibling joining his family, I felt like she perfectly captured the moments in my children's lives and the sense of connection I feel with them. Her voice is lovely and folksy, the music spare and not over-produced or too sweet. It's music suitable for adults but expressing the realities and feelings of children. Ack, I could go on and on. I loved it so much (honestly, nearly every track is top-notch) that I want to share it with you.
