Former rockin? Del Fuegos front-man and present-day banjo-playing familyman Dan Zanes is ?a Seeger for the new millennium? (Washington Post), performing folk- and rock-infused songs for the whole family?as heard on popular ?all ages? CDs like Rocket Ship Beach, Family Dance, and House Party. As the Los Angeles Times summed up Zanes? multi-generational magic: ?This cool artist, who plays electric and acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and autoharp, combines uncompromising vocal and instrumental artistry and a muscular pop beat with an all-embracing, downright homespun performance style that harks back to the days when sing-alongs in the parlor brought families and friends together.? And, in The New York Times? emphatic words: ?Zanes? kids? music works because it is not kids? music; it?s just music.?
Presented in association with San Francisco Performances.
