Nominated for best musician at last year’s BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines virtuoso playing and winning songwriting.
Mixing British, Irish and American folk music, delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – Dan performs with a unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo, helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument.
Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show, which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.
As usual, support will come in the form of Kardomah 94’s very popular ‘performer’s circle’ with three excellent local acts, each taking it in turns to perform one number at a time.
Kardomah94 is a unique city centre venue boasting good food and regional culture. Launched in 2015, it features a restaurant serving quality pizza, salads and sharers and an intimate exhibition-come-theatre space. With a jam-packed monthly calendar of events, from spoken word to film, theatre, comedy, photography and live music, this is the place to catch the best regional talent.
