performance at the Dulcimer World Congress 2015

film of my performance at the Dulcimer World Congress in Malvern in 2015 – I play i) Roger Nicholson’s piece Spring Season, Cyril Tawney’s song The Grey Funnel Line and my own minimalist train tune: Bullet Train – thanks to Sally Whitehead and the Dulcimer World Congress for making and editing the film

Nashville concert ~ part 3 ~ with Stephen Seifert

After playing solo in his concert for Nashville’s Grand Old Dulcimer Club in the Turner Hall, Nashville, Dan was joined by the brilliant dulcimer player Stephen Seifert, whereupon they improvised several duets off the cuff, with no preparation whatsoever – here are thier improvisations on Pachelbel’s Canon, Varsoviana and Let It Be – Dan was playing his Doug Berch dulcimer in DAA with Boss DD-500 delay FX and his Andy Viccars electric dulcimer, also in DAA with boss GT-1 FX – Stephen’s dulcimer would doubtless have been tuned to DAD – thanks to Linda Paulus for some excellent still images.

a few more reviews

concert review – solo

“Not easy to categorise; trad material presented with considerable classical skill on guitar and mountain dulcimer, but gently enhanced with technology.  One of his best tricks is to use a long echo and then play a duet with himself.  In other hands this would come over as an amusing gimmick – the effect from Dan is seriously musical.  In demand in the USA for workshops as well as performances, which may give you a hint of what to expect.
CAUTION: doesn’t show off. You only realise how good this man is after you’ve been listening a while and you realise you’ve been from trad to world to pop, through a bit of techno and home again in a sort of warm flowing stream.  CD’s good, too.”

Suggers, Bishops Stortford Folk Club, England

tree and stage backdrops

For UK concerts Dan can bring his tree backdrop – to enhance the visual appeal of the stage – and for local concerts to Olney, he can also bring the blue background panels (they fill the car and require a separate trip) – the panels not only look good and hide instrument cases but they also absorb noise and help with the sound on stage.

another sell-out concert

‘The three of you were a great success, as you could obviously see from the audience’s reaction at the end of your numbers.  Speaking to many of them before the event, very few knew what they were in for, because they did not know what a dulcimer was.  They do now!   It’s the first time we have had a sell-out in the hall and that was without your Olney following, who had heard you a few months previously.’  John Salter – event organiser
