About Dan Zanes

Dan Zanes occupies a unique place in American music where sea shanties, English music hall, North American and West Indian folk music, Mexican son jarocho, the spirit of early rock-and-roll and soulful originals collide. With his band, Dan Zanes and Friends, he has toured around the world sharing his handmade 21st century social music with enthusiastic crowds of kids and kid sympathizers. For more than a decade Grammy award winner Dan Zanes has been presenting his musical friends to the world with his original albums, introducing new songs and reconnecting people to songs that have always been there, and still are—it’s just that people forgot about them. Referred to as “the family-music genre’s most outspoken and eloquent advocate” by Time Magazine, his widely-acclaimed music has all been featured on Sesame Street, Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family and Sprout. Find more about Dan Zanes at www.danzanes.com.
