Dan Zanes and Friends/ ‘Lead Belly, Baby!’/ Smithsonian Folkways Recordings

The first Smithsonian Folkways release from the GRAMMY-winning family performer presents a fresh vision of Lead Belly’s music for a new generation, with a little help from his friends: Chuck D., Billy Bragg, Aloe Blacc, Valerie June and more. These songs, many of which are folk standards, are performed in a variety of styles, from hip-hop to psychedelic folk, to convey the broad impact of Lead Belly's music.
