ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This Planet We Call Home is the latest Dan Berggren album, the 19th released by Sleeping Giant Records. Subtitled Think Globally - Sing Locally, the songs sing of our global environment, the folks Dan has known in the rural towns of the Adirondacks, and taking care of both.

Dan’s roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised but his music has branched out across many borders. For over 40 years, the award-winning musician and educator has entertained audiences in libraries, coffeehouses, schools and concert halls across New York, from Vermont to Michigan, Kentucky to Texas, and overseas in Europe, the British Isles and Central Africa.

Before devoting his life to music full-time, Dan worked in the woods with a forest ranger and surveyor, was a radio producer in Europe, professor of audio/radio studies at SUNY Fredonia, and owner of Sleeping Giant Records.

Dan is a tradition-based songsmith who writes with honesty, humor and a strong sense of place. His concerts are engaging as he invites audiences to join in on songs that explore the lives of hard working folks and the many dimensions of home.

Quotes

“Berggren is old-school folk in the best of ways, simple, solid and sure.” ~ David Malachowski, Times Union

“Berggren’s gentle, personable style is heart-warming.” ~ Dale Anderson, Buffalo News

“A genuine treasure . . . fresh and timeless, full of courage and down to earth richness.” ~ Mark Hauser, Vermont Public Radio
