The Bird Sings Oral Tradition Song Library

Online Song Library

Welcome to the beginnings of what is slowly growing into a collection of more than 400 oral tradition songs I know and share in my classes and workshops.

Note: These libraries are maintained on a volunteer basis. Unfortunately, there are no scores available for these songs and no plans to add them. Thank you for your understanding!

Search for songs using the search box or by the categories & keywords listed to the right.

Or

Here is an A-Z Index.

Until this searchable database is complete, many more songs may be found on my old website here:

2014 Song-A-Day Challenge
.

I welcome requests and corrections to any errors you find.
Please reach out to me at lisa@thebirdsings.com.

    Just a suggestion…I find it hard to find songs by categories…tried to find Doin’ the Impossible for “After the Storm” show with Michael and when I write it in, it doesn’t come up. Would it be hard to do an alphabetical index?

      Thanks Janette! That’s a good idea and I’ll try to add that in. I did try typing that song in and it came right up for me. One tip: Try typing just one word of the title, or the composter. If you type it a little differently than I have it listed the search may not find it.

    Is there a way to download or purchase these songs for when we aren’t within internet connection?

    To Lisa.
    I so enjoyed my first time hearing your wonderful voices last night at Carmel Valley. I was overjoyed, and I love your closing saying that hearing this wonderful music, that cancer cells would just dissolve. I am hoping that is true, as I have been taking chemo for two months. Devastating. I opted to quit that Xeloda.
    I felt renewed from the energy in that hall last night. Thank you so very much.
    Sincerely, Ruth
