Caspar Babypants

Caspar Babypants is back to rock the Ridge with two shows! Chris Ballew, lead singer of The Presidents of the United States of America, lends his wacky chops to Caspar Babypants, purveyor of simple, good time sing-along music for kids and parents to enjoy together. “It’s not much of a stretch from The Presidents,” says Ballew. “I’m still singing songs about bugs and animals. I’m still drawing upon the same influences — old folk music and blues.” For the second show, bring a picnic lunch and a blanket if you’d like!
