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 traditional folk songs and airs from the British Isles, imaginative, original instrumentals and the odd classic song to round a set off nicely.  All are 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 seventeen international tours undertaken to date, Dan has won the hearts of audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
