Fred Penner deposits blog with Chainsaw
So, this guy, who used to have a kid's show on the CBC, is now doing a tour of campus pubs and playing requests (which included a bunch of folk standards, the alphabet, and even an attempt at Stairway to Heaven). He seems to have made great catch of the popularity of irony, and the best bits of blog were definitely the ones found overheard:
"There are grown people, with drinks in their hand, sitting on the floor, singing along"
"Everyone's just so happy....if it was anyone else...everyone just... just Fred Penner's awesomeness"
"It must be like weird for him. Like when he wrote these songs he was thinking of like little kids, and now were all like drunk."
