Welcome to danwalshbanjo.co.uk
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). His unique and eclectic style, taking in folk, funk, bluegrass and even some Arabic music, has stunned audiences across the UK many times but is also spreading its wings with recent successful performances in Germany, India and Canada and a tour of New Zealand still to come. His high energy performances and witty banter have made him one of the most exciting new talents around.
As well as his solo work, Dan will be joining the award winning Urban Folk Quartet at the end of the year. He also regularly performs with Northeast concertina legend Alistair Anderson as well as a forthcoming tour with sensational Indian sarangi player Suhail Yusuf Khan and recent Canadian tour with country singer Meaghan Blanchard. He's also been on the stage or in the studio with Seth Lakeman, the Levellers and Walsh and Pound. Both his solo albums have also received critical acclaim and extensive airplay on both sides of the Atlantic with FROOTS calling recent effort 'The Same But Different' consistently brilliant.
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.
