The first thing Grammy Award-winner Dan Zanes and vocalist Claudia Eliaza Zanes did when they started dating was create America’s first Sensory Friendly Comic Folk Opera, Night Train 57, for the Kennedy Center. The second thing they did was make a songbook called Dan Zanes’ House Party: A Family Roots Music Treasury. It was published by The Quarto Group in late 2018 to widespread acclaim from families, educators, and folk enthusiasts. They’ve also toured constantly, bringing their soulful folk music to people of all ages. And now they’re married.
