hello friends, neighbors, and lovers of rustic song and dance,

i can’t believe it but i’m writing to let you know about the turn turn turn pre-sale.

yes! after years of talking and hoping and dreaming and scheming, elizabeth mitchell and her family band known as you are my flower and i have made a cd.

and i’m so happy with it! we spent 3 days jamming in brooklyn and 3 days recording in woodstock. turn turn turn is the homespun sound of songs, snacks, friendship, and the love of modern and traditional music for people of all ages. i’ve played with many amazing artists over the years but i’ve never had a collaborative experience with this much joy and depth before. it called for a lot of mind reading. and good manners. and risks. and much laughter!

i’ve been highly recommending elizabeth’s music to families for over 10 years and it was an honor to make this record with her and her husband daniel and their daughter storey.

so there you are. i hope you enjoy it. i certainly have!

you can pre-order turn turn turn today in the dan zanes general store, at elizabeth’s website and at itunes and amazon.

and since words can only get us so far, how about a song? here’s one called “now let’s dance“. i’d love to know what you think about it. we’ll be playing shows across the country this year. visit our tour page to see some of the dates that are on the calendar now.

i hope that you are all digging into some hot weather music this summer,
