Dan Walsh · UK Banjo Maestro

Fiddling Cricket & Canyon Acoustic Society Concert Society 2019 Presents

Dan Walsh · UK’s Finest and Most Diverse Banjo Player

Thur 6/13, 7:30pm @Ugly Mug Soquel, $18/20

Hailed as the finest and most diverse banjo player in the UK and possibly Europe (also an excellent singer, songwriter and guitarist), Dan Walsh has been described as 'the real deal' (UNCUT magazine). He has four critically acclaimed solo albums, and a new one coming up. As well as many tours of the UK (solo; The Dan Walsh Trio; The Urban Quartet), he also visits Canada, Germany, India, Norway New Zealand, and the US for performances and band camps. This unique and eclectic young musician has delighted audiences across the world, and has had millions of U-Tube hits. At the heart of his music are British, Irish and American folk tunes, mixed with doses of funky grooves, humour, socially relevant lyrics and his own dazzling take on banjo style….including playing Indian ragas, that will challenge any preconception you have about the instrument. Dan delighted and amazed Ugly Mug audience a couple of years ago and we are delighted to have him return as part of his US tour this year.
