Dan Zanes and Elizabeth Mitchell are among today’s foremost creators of handmade, independent, age-desegregated music. He has won a GRAMMY, she has been nominated for one, and both have garnered tremendous critical acclaim. Between them, they have collaborated with a wide range of artists, including Andrew Bird, Debbie Harry, Natalie Merchant, Lou Reed, Ziggy Marley, Levon Helm, Angelique Kidjo, Philip Glass and many more. Although they have long been friends and confidantes, they have pursued parallel but separate paths, until this, their first collaborative recording Turn Turn Turn, which Zanes’ Festival Five Records releases August 27. The album brings Zanes’ and Mitchell’s homespun musical visions to a collection of songs spanning time and place.
