Dan Walsh returns to solo touring throughout the UK during late summer and autumn to promote the delayed release of a new live album, recorded in January 2020 in a special hometown gig in Stafford. Prior to the pandemic, Dan was one of the most in-demand performers on the folk scene with a hectic touring schedule in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and throughout Europe. Dan is also a member of the band Urban Folk Quartet.
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 helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument.
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.
