Dan returns to Common Grounds this week with his distinctive blend of acoustic folk and country rock.
[i:49a6f976e8]'It's old music but it's actually new music - sounding like old music - but I like it!' [b:49a6f976e8]Gerry Anderson, BBC Radio Ulster[/b:49a6f976e8]
'He can belt out a tune!' [b:49a6f976e8]George Jones, U105 Radio[/b:49a6f976e8]
'Don't miss acoustic folk-minded Dolbro Dan whose musical maturity belies his tender years' [b:49a6f976e8]Patric Baird, Belfast Telegraph[/b:49a6f976e8]
'Here's something quite spectacular and unexpected. Dan's songs are simple but effective strummers with charming self-referential ruminations. There's a great sense of self-deprecating humour and fun with a keen handle on when to play it entirely straight too' [b:49a6f976e8]Alternative Ulster[/b:49a6f976e8][/i:49a6f976e8]
A complete newcomer to the music scene who comes highly recommended by his friends up west, he lists his influences as childhood, Belfast streets and girls.
