Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space
In his songs for children and their families, Randy Kaplan blends American Roots, Country Blues, and Comedic Storytelling. He finger-picks and strums his way through unpredictable live shows which, in addition to his original compositions, include Tin Pan Alley gems, Broadway numbers, and Delta Blues songs. "He doesn't dumb it down for the kids... He just expects them to come along for the ride. And they do" (Time Out New York Kids). As indebted to Steve Martin and Ogden Nash as he is to Arlo Guthrie and Dave Van Ronk, "(Randy's) original song are as imaginative and rambling as a preschooler" (The Lovely Mrs. Davis). Randy started his kids' music career in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and now resides in Los Angeles, California.
"a fresh dose of brassy, folksy fun for moms, dads and kids alike." -New York Family
