Teach Your Children (ft. Papa Rudi) – New Video

As you are reading this, we are adventuring through Iceland celebrating our 30th birthday!

We haven’t been on a proper holiday in many years, so we decided to go big for our birthday and cross something off our bucket list that we’ve dreamed about since we were kids. Of course, we’re bringing our cameras and will try to capture as much of it as we can for a future (music) video!

But more importantly today, the 16th of June, we are not only celebrating our 30th – it’s also Father’s Day (in the UK, US, and a few other places)!

So we are sharing a special video that we filmed with Papa Rudi! The song is part of our most recent album, The Duo Sessions II!

“Teach Your Children” seemed like the perfect song to play together, especially for today’s occasion. There is no person more influential to us, and we have learned so much from him and continue to do so every day. We really couldn’t wish for a better father, and if there’s one thing he has done for us, it’s to instill the bravery to dream and to go for it. He’s our biggest hero ♥

We used to play this song as just the two of us many, many years ago when we were teenagers, but we don’t think we ever grasped its full meaning until many years later. It’s one of those songs that hit different once you grow up!

A poignant masterpiece by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and to be able to do the 3-part harmonies together with Dad means so much to us.

We love you Dad, thanks for doing this song with us!

To our dad and all the other dads out there – Happy Father’s Day! ♥

What, and no mention of it being two days away from Maca’s birthday? And Papa is even playing a Hofner Violin bass and playing through a Vox amp!… 🙂

Absolutely gorgeous 3-part harmonies. This version appeals to me more than the original…but that’s beause I’m addicted to your voices I guess. And it reminds me of the very early recordings you did with your mum and dad, sixteen years or so ago. Great!

This was very touching. Dad/daughter relationships can be such jewels. I’m very happy it is for you. Your words lift me.

As an older dad myself, I would enjoy seeing more videos with “Papa Rudi” as he a very good musician and singer with both You. Nice job on this CSNY song, thanks Girls!!
