Live At The Floodgate
Recorded before the first lockdown, Live At The Floodgate is the first live outing for top banjo player, singer and guitarist Dan Walsh. Recorded in his spiritual home of Stafford, the album sees a varied set featuring material from each of his five critically acclaimed albums as well as brand new material and old live favourites that have never been recorded before such as his version of Johnny Handle’s ‘Jack Crawford’ and his slap guitar version of Paul Simon’s ‘You Can Call Me Al’.
‘Live records can sometimes be a filler, a stopgap between studio recordings. This is decidedly not so, standing both as a primer for anyone unfamiliar with Walsh and being the greatest hits for those already fans. The joy and pleasure Walsh exudes in this live performance is striking. Live at the Floodgate captures the magic and glow of Walsh at his very best’ – FOLK RADIO
‘Live At The Floodgate puts together some of Dan’s best material and is a very varied set. If you think you don’t like banjo, take a listen or, better still, catch Dan live. It’s by far the best way’ – FOLKING.COM
Before the album’s official release, it is available only at gigs or by ordering direct from Dan via the paypal link.
