    Uncle Rock, Liz Mitchell, and Zucchini Brothers Walk into a Bar...

    ... actually, they don't walk into a bar at all. But Uncle Rock and Ben Rudnick get quoted and they all are mentioned in an article on the kids music resurgence in this week's Metroland, an Albany, NY-area alternative weekly. (And, hey, I'm quoted.) I also like, in the last paragraph, the justification for family music:

    As 21st-century parents, we expect musicians not just to entertain our kids, but us too. That may sound self- indulgent, and to some extent it is. But as entertainment companies beam their offerings to narrower and narrower demographic slices, the idea of parents and kids listening to the same music starts to sound pretty good.

    “Stories about romantic trials don’t appeal to 4-year-olds,” says Zooglobble’s Shepherd. “So it’s an opportunity for musicians to tell stories about the other 90 percent of the human experience.”

    that pretty well sums it up for me!
