Fun, upbeat, family music! Ralph was teaching music class to little kids and their families at the revered, legendery Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. He figured out that he could create music that was as good, or better, than much of what's out there. his music is sometimes irreverent, but most hipster parents will actully like that. His songs capture the fun and frustration of childhood without being condescending. Not syrupy sweet. Sometimes he riffs off popular rock tunes, and that's cool, too! Ralph's World is great in concert, too. Highly recommended.
