Dan Zanes delves into American and global roots traditions to create some of the most engaging and fun family music ever recorded. His forthcoming Smithsonian Folkways album celebrates the blues icon Lead Belly; Zanes takes to the Bandshell with Ashley Phillips and a gaggle of other friends for a special live sneak peek. The show honors the centennial of the birth of trailblazing author (and Brooklynite) Ezra Jack Keats, who introduced characters of color to mainstream children’s literature. The festivities begin with the delightful Tada! Youth Theater performing one of Keats’ most beloved stories.
