Dan Walsh Trio
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). He now has three critically acclaimed solo albums with his new album Incidents and Accidents receiving excellent reviews.
As well as many tours of the UK, he also has recent successful trips to Canada, Germany, India, Norway and New Zealand to his credit. Having made his name with the duo Walsh and Pound and now a member of the award winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage and on record with the Levellers and Seth Lakeman, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.
His wide-ranging and innovative approach has led to many exciting collaborations alongside his solo work and the Urban Folk Quartet including tours with Northeast concertina legend Alistair Anderson and recent work with sensational Indian sarangi player Suhail Yusuf Khan as well as Canadian country singer Meaghan Blanchard.
He also retains a passion for outreach work and through the prestigious Live Music Now scheme has performed throughout the UK in hospices, hospitals, special schools and care homes. He also teaches banjo both in person and over skype.
