The Welcome Table: Songs of Inspiration, Mystery & Good Times
by Dan Zanes
Released: Feb 2009
Label: Festival Five Records
It's hard to tell whether Dan Zanes is risking his audience or broadening it. Musically, this is everything you'd expect of a DZAF release -- homegrown acoustic playing anchored by Zanes' nerdy rasp, a few songs in Spanish, guest singers who sound thrilled to be in on the party. The difference is that all the songs have a religious bent. Anybody who appreciates North American folk music will welcome this logical dive into sacred music, though it may stick in some secular parents' craws -- and lead to a few difficult conversations. Album proceeds benefit an interfaith group helping immigrants.
