Dan Walsh

by David Bandrowski

Touted as one of the finest banjo players in the UK as well as being a superb singer, songwriter and guitarist, Dan Walsh is described as 'the real deal' (UNCUT). His unique and eclectic style, taking in folk, funk, bluegrass and even some Arabic music, has stunned audiences across the UK many times but is also spreading its wings with recent successful performances in Germany, India and Canada and a very successful first tour of New Zealand. His high energy performances and witty banter have made him one of the most exciting new talents around.

As well as his solo work, Dan has joined the award winning Urban Folk Quartet. He also regularly performs with Northeast concertina legend Alistair Anderson as well as recent tours with sensational Indian sarangi player Suhail Yusuf Khan and Canadian country singer Meaghan Blanchard. He's also been on the stage or in the studio with Seth Lakeman, the Levellers and Walsh and Pound. Both his solo albums have also received critical acclaim and extensive airplay on both sides of the Atlantic with FROOTS calling recent effort 'The Same But Different' consistently brilliant.
