Dan Walsh - Walton Folk

BBC Folk Awards Best Musician nominee Dan Walsh combines ‘virtuoso playing and winning songwriting’ (MORNING STAR).

Describing what Dan does is no easy task, but at the heart of it, it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo - helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument.
He has released two banjo tablature books, including the brand new book of clawhammer arrangements of Irish folk tunes.

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. 

Walsh has recorded five albums to much critical acclaim and is an in demand performer with a hectic touring schedule in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and throughout Europe. He is in demand as session musician and has performed on stage or on record with the likes of Joss Stone, Ward Thomas, Imelda May, the Levellers and Seth Lakeman. Both solo and as a member of the award-winning Urban Folk Quartet, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.
