Biography

Over three decades Dan Evans has built a niche career as a world-class exponent on both the mountain dulcimer and acoustic guitar.  He accompanies his fine baritone voice with beautiful and original dulcimer and guitar music.

In concert he presents a repertoire of original compositions, folk songs and airs and the odd classic song to round a set off nicely.  All are beautifully arranged in Dan’s unique, thoughtful style and presented with considerable classical skill and a spoonful of English humour.

With five CD albums released to critical international acclaim and eighteen international tours undertaken to date, Dan has won the hearts of audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

Based in Olney, England, Dan is a Fellow of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (FISM) and is listed in Who’s Who in Popular Music.
