What people are saying about the Banjo Wizard



Welcome to danwalshbanjo.co.uk

Nominated for best musician at last year's BBC Folk Awards and 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). 2017 sees the release of a highly anticipated new solo album after the success of critically acclaimed album Incidents and Accidents which was lauded as 'absolutely terrific' by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2. As well as many tours of the UK, he also has recent successful trips to USA, Canada, Germany, India, Norway and New Zealand to his credit. Both solo and as a member of the award winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage with Imelda May, Joss Stone and the Levellers, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.

Dan Walsh uses Deering banjos, D'addario strings and Freshman guitars

    Dear all,


    A very happy St Patrick's Day to my Irish friends around the globe. It's the first time in about thirteen years that I won't be doing a gig on Paddy's Day. In my younger years and particularly in Newcastle I used to play loads of gigs on the day and it was a vital income stream. I even enjoyed it sometimes...but I think my horror of fancy dress and groups of people acting in irritating ways is too much for me these days. In the last few years I've gigged in my normal way but this year it so happens I'm not. I will probably be staying in to avoid irritation.


    Anyway, that's a cheerful start to the blog isn't it?! To bring you up to speed, after returning from Gran Canaria I had a few days practice before heading to London for a seriously hectic week culminating in 'A Night Of Country' at the Roundhouse. This was a gig with an 18 piece 'house band' of stellar musicians which I was very glad to be a part of. There were then some guest artists including Imelda May (of whom I'm a big fan!), Duane Eddy, Ward Thomas and a solo set from Seasick Steve. It was fun to be a part of it all. Rehearsals Read more...
