Deering Live - Featuring Dan Walsh

by David Bandrowski

Our guest on Deering Live last week was the unique clawhammer banjoist Dan Walsh. Everything about Dan Walsh and his approach to banjo is unorthodox. It is what makes him such a unique and spectacular player. If you are not familiar with Dan, picture this - A British guy, playing funky groove-laden Clawhammer on a banjo that many would argue should be reserved for Bluegrass, all the while infusing his own dose of British and American folk, with the occasional sprinkling of Indian/middle-Eastern influence. Dan challenges just about every misconception about what the banjo is and how it should be played, and we look forward to exploring his take on it.
