Clarinets, kazoos, and banjos, oh my!

Generate some excitement for the long days of summer vacation with KB Whirly’s new CD, “Camp Songs: Volume 1.” On some of these tracks, Whirly’s gravelly voice hints of early Tom Waits, and the arrangements by Patrick Hanlin (of Josh & the Jamtones fame) of many of the classic and original songs are reminiscent of Randy Newman’s “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” Boston-based Whirly will celebrate the release of his joyous, humorous album with a show in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park on June 16.

On “Ricky Ticki Toomba,” Whirly passes the microphone over to the Holliston Crew Chorus, whose lively a cappella rendition of this camp song is accompanied by the delightfully evocative sounds of a crackling campfire.

There’s so much to love about Whirly’s celebration of the joys (ghost stories! clapping games!) and pitfalls (bugs! poison ivy!) of the great outdoors, that we can’t wait to hear s’more!

“Camp Songs: Volume 1” CD by KB Whirly, $9.49, www.KBwhirly.com.
