Kindie Concert: Randy Kaplan

when: Oct 7, 2012 at 11 AM

where: 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson, Tribeca, Ny

cost: $15 per person

ages: All ages

add to calendar: Google   iCal/Outlook

the scoop:

Kaplan is an old soul, a troubadour from another time and place who just happens to grace our 21st century world.  His not-just-for-kid’s music is cleverly laced with references to the likes of Sigmund Freud and Ezra Jack Keats, and his Randy-ized versions of familiar songs from the cannon of popular music (Dylan’s “Forever Young”) and show tunes (“Over the Rainbow”, “Tomorrow”) have made him a bona fide kindie star. On his latest album, Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie, Kaplan transports us to a more cheery, depression-era America as he runs country blues and ragtime standards from Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and Bessie Smith through his magical song interpretation machine.
