Dan’s the real deal

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) and ‘taking the banjo into the stratosphere’ (Froots) with a unique and eclectic style taking in folk, funk, bluegrass, jazz, rock and even Arabic.

He is at The New Orleans Jazz Club, Louth, on Friday April 12. Tickets from Off The Beaten Tracks in Aswell Street or on the door.

After three years of touring the UK as one half of award nominated duo Walsh and Pound, Dan’s returning to his solo gigs as well as fronting an all-new Dan Walsh band made up of outstanding and award winning musicians including the Shee’s Rachel Newton and drummer Adam Sinclair whose credits range from the New York Dolls to the Unthanks.

He is also performing with the legendary Alistair Anderson and has recently appeared on stage and in the studio with Seth Lakeman, the Levellers, Martin Simpson and numerous others.

New album The Same But Different is out now to fantastic reviews across the music press. The album follows on from the critically acclaimed (on both sides of the Atlantic) Walsh and Pound album and solo debut Tomorrow’s Still To Come.
