Happy Easter! This week on Ages 3 and Up! we celebrated spring just a little bit more. We played perennial fave, “Tubby the Tuba.” Listened to vintage Easter songs, and paid homage to an egg who deserves remembrance this time of year (that’s right… Humpty Dumpty!). We also played lovely songs about horses, in honor of the opening of Keeneland’s spring meet.
The “Hip-Hop Humpty Dumpty” song we played comes from the album pictured above, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer’s Banjo to Beatbox. It’s really a VERY interesting album, combining bluegrass with beatbox, as implied by the title. Definitely worth a listen!
The Speks– “Humpty Dumpty”- Sing Along Songs From Glasses Island

We also played this- the new children’s album from Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem. Ranky Tanky features some great original tracks and some really good Americana style covers of classic kids’ songs, including: “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out,” “The Green Grass Grows All Around,” “Purple People Eater,” “Kee-Mo, Ky-Mo (The Magic Song),” and “Morningtown Ride.” Highly recommended.
Have a great week!
