Dan Walsh

Friday 2nd March 7:30pm

Nominated for best musician at last year’s BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines virtuoso playing with winning songwriting. 

Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music. Challenging all preconceptions about the instrument, Dan delivers a unique and dazzling take on claw hammer-style banjo, with a healthy dose of funky grooves.

Add to that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world, from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.

Dan’s new album Verging on the Perpendicular – his fourth solo album – has received much critical acclaim and is accompanied by a hectic touring schedule taking in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

‘The perfect balance of authenticity and flair. Without ever ignoring the past, it points the way to an exciting future for banjo music’ – folkradio.co.uk

Both solo and as a member of the award-winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage with Imelda May, Joss Stone and the Levellers, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.
