Album Notes
Praise for We All Live Downstream:

Winner: 2008 National Association of Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Honor Award

"[T]he premiere eco-band in the country … Take this CD and do your part in helping to raise the next green generation."
Fred Koch
Chicago Parent Magazine

"The award-winning Banana Slug String Band (“Airy” Larry, “Solar” Steve, “Marine” Mark and Doug “Dirt”) presents a celebration of all things water …. This outstanding album features catchy tunes that teach youngsters about the importance of a healthy environment….”
Starred review, School Library Journal

"Eco-music group Banana Slug String Band tackles water ecology in 10 smart, focused songs. enlightening, heartfelt, and often lyrical celebration of water."

"…rousing…a lyrical triumph… "
Good Times

"Blues, gospel, funk, bluegrass, reggae, folk, they all get a sounding in Slugs' new CD, which features guest players such as Laurie Lewis and Tim O'Brien, both of whom are leading figures in contemporary bluegrass. If there's anything that the Banana Slug String Band knows how to do, it's to communicate sometimes complicated scientific ideas through the medium of song to school-aged children."
The Santa Cruz Sentinel

The mission of the Banana Slug String Band is to network with like-minded organizations whose goal it is to work for a healthy environment through education. It will take us all working together to make sure our children inherit a livable environment because, as the title song of the new CD says, "We all live downstream, someone else is living up from us. We all live downstream, someone else is further down."

For 23 years, the award-winning Banana Slug String Band (BSSB) has been educating, entertaining and performing for family and school audiences. We have produced 9 CDs, one video (DVD) and one book.

During this time we have had the pleasure of working on successful educational CD projects. “Slugs at Sea” was a 1991 recording project, funded by MARE (Lawrence Hall of Science at U.C. Berkeley), which provides musical introductions and lessons based on concepts for MARE K-8 curriculum.

In 1999, the Teton Natural History Association, the Teton Science Center, and the Museum of Wildlife Art funded the BSSB CD “Goin’ Wild in Yellowstone and the Tetons,” which focused on ecological issues relevant to the national parks. The CD won several awards including the American Federation for Independent Musicians Children’s Album of the year.

The BSSB children’s book, “River Song,” illustrates the water cycle. The band has just released its ninth CD, “We All Live Downstream,” which focuses on watersheds.

Teachers regularly use BSSB songs in their science curricula. Several education sites refer to us as a resource. The band performs at schools
throughout the US and Canada.
