A NEW New Haven Kid

Some of you may be wondering why there seems to be some slacking going on here at New Haven Kids. Well, truth be told, I've been sleeping on the job...literally. See, there is a new New Haven Kid due to join the world any day now and this New Haven mom has been doing quite a bit of resting before that day arrives. I usually post during my son's nap, but now I nap when he naps!

Please don't give up on me! I vow to be better and hope to have a list of the weekend's events up today!

Cheers to a busy 2010--a year that is sure to bring more posts for the newborn age group!

We have a real treat for you! A bluegrass concert for children - coming to New Haven this January. If you have kids, grandkids are you're just a big kid yourself, you won't want to miss this family concert. "Astrograss for kids" is an interactive, exciting, educational bluegrass band who are based out of Brooklyn, NY and have been performing for audiences at venues across the country - venues such as, Greyfox Bluegrass festival, NY, South by South West Festival, TX, Appalachian Uprising bluegrass festival, OH, BB King's Blues club, and the Symphony Space, NY to name but a few. The band's self-titled debut album, released in 2005, showcases its unique sound: earthy, bluegrass-inspired yet decidedly un-twangy. Astrograss is equally passionate in its vocal harmonies and surging improvisations. In concert, Astrograss wows audiences with an eclectic yet solidly rooted mix of original material, choice covers ranging from Jimmy Webb to Guns n' Roses. This New York band’s second disc is full of upbeat, banjo- and fiddle-filled ditties that recall traditional Gaelic music. Be prepared to participate in this concert. Sure to be a fun time for the whole family.

"Astrograss lend stratospheric virtuosity to tunes ranging from Bill Monroe to Frank Zappa."
---Richard Gehr, The Village Voice (Dec. 22-28, 2004)
