Dan Walsh Trio to perform at Ropery Hall
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”.
Now with three critically acclaimed solo albums to his credit, his new album Incidents and Accidents has been receiving excellent reviews and on Saturday, April 30, he is playing at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall.
“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,” said Mick Harding of Mad Dog Folk.
“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,” Mick went on.
His banjo playing has been described by Radio 2 as second to none on the UK scene and he’d put many to shame in the US too’ (R2) while Folk Radio describes his music as a perfect blend of breathtaking playing with a gift for telling a story.
Dan 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 as well as teaching banjo both in person and over skype.
