“Mighty Wolf,” the new album from Jeff & Paige, is a joyous nature hike told through narration and song. Paige Doughty and Jeff Kagan give voices to the insects and animals they meet along the way (imagine an English-speaking beaver, with a lisp). Their human baby, Wolf, can be heard cooing, too.
Jeff & Paige’s original songs are entertaining while slyly delivering challenging educational material. I was introduced to the concept of a keystone species (such as the important, aforementioned lisping beaver), and I laughed — and groaned — at the hilariously dark, euphemism-rich “Dead and Delicious,” a rocking song about road kill scavengers (“Carry on, raven/ Carrion”).
Jeff & Paige are extraordinarily talented edu-tainers, and I can’t wait to see what Wolf will inspire them to teach us next!
