BEAVER CREEK, Colorado Calling all kids and kids at heart: get ready to sing and dance with to the sounds of the 21st century, all-ages folk musicians Dan Zanes and Friends. Youve might have heard their hit records or maybe seen them on Playhouse Disney. Theyll take the stage at the Vilar Center tonight as part of the Beaver Creek Cookie Kids Fest.
