Be Here Now: Uncle Rock @ Hudson Opera House, 6/5/10
“Shel Silverstein meets Buddy Holly.” – The Los Angeles Times
“Kids’ music with an edge.” – The New York Daily News
“A star among the young.” – The New York Times
Woodstock singer-songwriter Robert Burke Warren has been the bassist in numerous rock ‘n’ roll bands, including international garage-rock sensations, the Fleshtones. He’s portrayed the title character onstage in “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story” in London’s West End. And he’s also co-written songs for multi-Grammy winner Rosanne Cash and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson.
But you can call him Uncle Rock.
Uncle Rock is also celebrating the recent release of his fourth kids’ music album, “The Big Picture,” and he’ll uncork such hook-filled, kid-friendly fare as “My Friend Bigfoot” and “Leave the Bees Be” in concert at the Hudson Opera House in Hudson at 2pm on Saturday.
Here he performs “Uncle Rock U.” and “Rock Out” at Kidtopia in Woodstock in 2008:
