In 1994 Grammy Award winner Dan Zanes became a father and began creating family music, featured on Sesame Street, Playhouse Disney, and Nickelodeon. In 2017, Dan and his spouse, Claudia Eliaza, created Night Train 57: A Sensory Friendly Comic Folk Opera, premiering at The Kennedy Center. In Zanes’ recent publication, House Party! A Family Roots Music Treasury, he curates folk songs representing the American experience. Dan Zanes will read passages from his book, and he and Claudia will perform a few tunes.
