Nominated for best musician at last year's BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines 'virtuoso playing and winning songwriting' (MORNING STAR). Describing what Dan does is no easy task, but at the heart of 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. 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. Dan is one not to miss anytime he is playing near you!
Learning how to play the banjo is no different. There are different types of banjos and plenty of new terminology for parts of banjos and playing styles. Aspiring players also wonder what makes one banjo better than another.
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. We are excited to be collaborating with Ed Helms, Molly Tuttle & Ketch Secor, and Kristin Scott Benson. Each banjo has been designed in collaboration with the artist, and in some cases the charity itself, and personally signed by the respective artists. They will be auctioned below from Nov 28th through Dec 10th with the proceeds benefiting the charities of the artist's choice.
