Tom Chapin @ Aptos Farmer's Market

Tom Chapin singing, "Together Tomorrow"

Right now Ronan and Nieve's favorite singer/songwriter is Tom Chapin - just about every day they ask to listen to his music. Mom found that he was going to do a morning performance at the Celebrating Schools Food Festival in Aptos this weekend (at the farmer's market) so we made a little trip of it.

Ronan and Nieve took it upon themselves to dance together

Tom was an excellent live performer - in addition to playing and singing well he was effective in engaging the audience to participate in the songs. Ronan and Nieve got up and danced together (unprompted from us) and sang along when they could.

More dance action

At the end of the show Ronan told Tom, "When I grow up I'm going to play guitar with you."

To which Tom responded, "If you practice and learn, you very well may!"

The always resourceful Ronan found a way to get a picture with his favorite musician

What a fun outing - loved the pix of the kids dancing. I guess Tom Chapin knows how to reach kids. Great shot of Ronan on Tom's lap - must have been a peak experience for Ro - hey, maybe for Tom, too.
