THUrsday MAY 24
2014 Winner of the prestigious Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest, Daniel shares experiences from a life well-lived in places as far-ranging as Japan, Okinawa, and Padre Island, Texas. With his well-crafted story songs and friendly tenor this balladeer /songwriter delights audiences coast-to-coast in over one hundred shows a year, from House Concerts and listening rooms to major festivals (Kerrville, Winfield, Woody Guthrie, and others).
Daniel’s songs tell interesting stories about a variety of unusual characters, including himself. He plays the guitar and banjitar (a banjo/guitar hybrid) with a deft fingerpicking style that always enhances the stories, and a bit of harmonica into the bargain. His clear tenor draws positive comparisons to John Denver and Pete Seeger, and like Pete, Daniel is happiest when his audiences sing too! There’s a reason that Still on the Hill calls him “one of the most talented songwriters on the circuit.” Whether or not you’ve walked the very same roads, you can’t help but relate to these songs – and no matter what your story is, you’ll love Daniel’s.
