As a young boy, GRAMMY-winning children's artist Dan Zanes was drawn to the music of Lead Belly in all of its magic, imagination, and mystery. This discovery completely changed his view of the world and his place in it. Zanes now presents a fresh vision of Lead Belly's music for a new generation with a little help from his friends. Experience Lead Belly’s songs through a new lens as Dan Zanes celebrates an American musical icon.

Grammy Award winner Dan Zanes occupies a unique place in American music where sea shanties, English music hall, North American and West Indian folk music, play party songs, the spirit of early rock-and-roll and soulful originals collide. Beginning in the year 2000 he has performed everywhere from thrift shop basements to Carnegie Hall, from Brooklyn to Bahrain and beyond, and during that time has released over a dozen children’s CDs and several DVDs reconnecting people to songs that have always been there, and still are—although people may have forgotten 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.

For the past year, Zanes has been a strong advocate for Sensory Friendly performances and is working with Haitian-American jazz vocalist / Music Therapist Claudia Eliaza to find new ways to reach and include communities with children who have special needs.

Always great. Always kind and so patient with the kids. I think all the grow ups had a blast too. This one sure did.
