Seattle-based chidlren's musician Caspar Babypants is celebrating a new album and upcoming Halloween festivities as only he can. The new album is called "Baby Beatles" and it's a fun, inventive mix of Beatles classics skillfully arranged and recorded to appeal to babies and young children, along with their parents.
Caspar performed the song "Here Comes the Sun" then joined Margaret to chat about the album, song selections and share the "true" story about the song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."
Caspar will perform at two events this Saturday (October 26):
11:00am at Top Pot Doughnuts in Wedgewood (6855 35th Ave NE, Seattle)
2:00pm at Capitol Hill's "Hilloween" party in Cal Anderson Park (1635 11th Ave, Seattle. The show is at the bowl near the wading pool)
About "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds":
John Lennon claimed the song was inspired by a drawing (see below) his then 4-year-old son Julian drew for a preschool classmate named "Lucy." Click here for a story in the London Daily Mail newspaper about the real "Lucy."
