When: Sun., July 19 2009

Brooklyn-based folk/pop troubadour Dan Zanes — a smiling songwriter and 12-string guitar player — used to play in a cool, Boston-based college-rock band called The Del Fuegos. He’s making homemade family music and “encouraging similar behaviors in friends and neighbors” these days. The wild-haired singer and his ensemble plan to deliver a melodic, dynamic family-friendly concert at the Music Farm at 3 p.m. on Sunday. Zanes’ latest album, The Welcome Table: Songs of Inspiration, Mystery, and Good Times, is a collection of old and new recordings of smiley tunes put together to help create awareness for the New Sanctuary Movement ( — “a coalition of interfaith religious leaders and participating congregations called by their faith to respond actively and publicly to the suffering of our immigrant brothers and sisters living in the United States.”
