Nominated for best musician at this year’s BBC Folk Awards, and touted as one of the finest banjo players in the UK – as well as being a superb singer, songwriter and guitarist – Dan Walsh has been described as ‘the real deal’ (UNCUT). He now has three critically acclaimed solo albums to his name with most recent album Incidents and Accidents lauded as ‘absolutely terrific’ by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2.
Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo. Add to all 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.
As well as many tours of the UK, Dan also has recent successful trips to the USA, Canada, Germany, India, Norway and New Zealand to his credit. Having made his name with duo Walsh and Pound, he is now an extremely busy performer touring throughout the world both solo and as a member of the award-winning Urban Folk Quartet.
