My recordings of olden days.
The Cat Came Back - With his
trusty guitar, banjo, and mountain
dulcimer, Mike sings some of the
classic kid songs and those destined to
be. Whether it’s losing a library book
or hunting for groundhog, this has
something for everyone. By the way,
it has been selected by a couple of
school and daycares as the official van
tape (the one everyone can agree on).

Includes: The Cat Came Back, The
Riverboat Song, They’re Gonna Put Me
in Jail, Wish I Was a Mole in the
Ground, Gypsy Rover, In My Time,
Rubber Blubber Whale, Groundhog, I’m
Gonna Tell, I’m a Little Cookie, and
The Body in the Bag.  
Approx. 40 minutes - ages 3 - adult
contains live video of Mike dating back
to the New Salem Storytelling Festival
and other venues. If you watch closely,
you can see his hair change colors and
slowly disappear!

"The energy of Anderson's
performance shines as brightly as the
August sun."

Oh, Groundhog,
I Dropped It! and Warm Kitty

SOLO; NOT ALONE -The Mountain
Dulcimer blends so easily with the sounds of

playing unencumbered by other musical
