Dan Zanes And Friends
© Arthur Elgort
Zanes, former lead singer of The Del Fuegos, performs exuberant, rootsy Americana for kids. Drawing on everything from folk to early rock 'n' roll and driven by the sounds of accordion and electric steel guitar (like 'Sesame Street' produced by Ry Cooder), Zanes' music is hugely popular in the US and he looks set to perform the same trick here with two shows a day over a four-day period. With pals like Nick Cave and Natalie Merchant performing on his album and lots of guests promised here it sure beats 'The Wiggles'.
