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 is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on claw hammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument.

Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures, plus 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.

"One of the most incredible musicians I’ve heard in years" – Bruce MacGregor, BBC Radio Scotland 

"If one name is synonymous with the revival of interest in the banjo, it’s Dan Walsh" – Living Tradition

"A real world class banjo player" – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6

"His banjo playing is second to none in the UK and he’d put many to shame in the US too" – RnR Magazine
