ABOUT DAN ZANES

Dan Zanes is the former lead singer of the Del Fuegos, a garage pop band that was named “best new band” in 1984 by Rolling Stone Magazine. The birth of his daughter, Anna, in 1995, lead Zanes to start playing children’s music due to a dearth of intelligent musical options on the market at that time. Since 2000, Zanes has released 9 albums for children and was nominated for a Grammy in 2003 for the album House Party. His 2007 album, Catch That Train! won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Album for Children in 2003… among many other noteworthy awards and honors. www.danzanes.com

ABOUT ELIZABETH MITCHELL

Elizabeth Mitchell has been recording music for children since 1998 and will offer a solo performance this month at MASS MoCA. She has release 4 children’s music albums, including the gospel-folk-reggae album, You Are My Sunshine.

Hilltown Families contributing writer Amber Bobnar reviewed Elizabeth’s newest album, Sunny Day in her column, Must-Hear Music Monday. She writes: “Elizabeth sings many traditional folk songs from around the world, but combines them in her seamless style. Her voice and arrangements are soft and safe; you can’t help but feel comfortable and comforted while listening to her music. It’s perfect music for after-school-wind-down time, for snuggling, or for just feeling happy and at home.” www.youaremyflower.org
