"I was delighted by the range of material on "East Dakota Waltz" from fine

artists, Dan Zahn & Kate Moretti.  I was equally delighted by, though not

at all surprised with, the exceptional vocals and musicianship, excellent

originals, covers, and arrangement of traditional material. The album

features Rutsy Winchel on bass and harmony vocals, and the three-part

harmony with Dan, Kate, and Rusty is warm and wonderful. East Dakota

Waltz is highly recommended."

--Lilli Kuzma, host of "Folk Festival" on WDCB Public Radio

"Dan Zahn and Kate Moretti are both solo performers in their own right with legions of fans and musical friends (many who drop by during their concerts to join the performance.) When they join together as a duo special things happen and musical sparks fly."

Dan Zahn and Kate Moretti both sing from the heart and have drawn superb praise for their vocal capabilities, instrumentation, and musicianship. "Dan's adept guitar work and Kate's sultry vocals are a combination that smolders and swings!" 


"Very few artists manage to captivate an audience like Dan & Kate. They will take you on a journey through timeless tunes."

"Dan Zahn wears many hats. He is first and foremost one of the finest guitarists most folks will ever hear. Plus, he's a superb mandolin picker, a well crafted songwriter, and expressive vocalist, and a really enjoyable entertainer to boot. As if that's not enough, Dan is also a music teacher, an award winning portrait artist, and folk music enthusiast.Kate’s quick witted humor and charming personality make her a crowd favorite wherever she appears. Moretti shines in the vocal spotlight with a voice that is sweet and gentle one moment and strong and bluesy the next.”

"Dan Zahn...a consummate performer with a refreshing lack of pretense."

"In ten years of hosting quality concerts at this venue, we never had a standing ovation - until Dan Zahn performed that is."
