biography

With over three decades of professional experience, Dan Evans has built a niche career as a world-class exponent on both the mountain dulcimer and acoustic guitar.  He composes original, nature-themed music and also accompanies his fine baritone voice.

In concert he presents a repertoire of original instrumentals, 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 six 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.  A Fellow of the prestigious Incorporated Society of Musicians (FISM), Dan also contributes to the international Dulcimer Players News magazine.
