Dan Zanes’ House Party!: A Musical Storytime w/ Claudia Eliaza
November 10 @ 11:00 am
Dan Zanes has spent the past 20 years creating a truly compelling body of children’s music that music-loving parents can also get behind. A former 1980s indie rocker and member of The Del Fuegos, Zanes’ many children’s albums have gained wide praise for their authentic arrangements and preservation of America’s folk traditions.
In this new songbook, Zanes has curated a rich selection of folk songs that comprise an essential musical cross-section of the American experience and its multicultural, immigrant underpinnings. The selections include the standard songs we all know and love, along with folk classics. Each song is accompanied by a brief narrative on its historical context, followed by lyrics, notation, and chords. Dan Zanes’ House Party! also includes informational sidebars throughout to give families the basics needed to pick up instruments and learn to more fully enjoy music as a family band. And in the back of the book, you’ll find chord charts for guitar, ukelele, banjo, and mandolin.
