a brief career history

a brief history of Dan Evans’ music career

early beginnings

With no training in music but good woodworking skills, Dan built two dulcimers whilst at school and then played mandolin in the school folk band.  Inspired by legendary British dulcimer player Roger Nicholson, with whom he was later to work, Dan learned a little early music on the dulcimer.  At university he taught himself guitar and, aside from fifteen minutes coaching with the British virtuoso guitarist Martin Simpson, is still completely self-taught on his instruments to this day.  His university days were certainly formative and artists he first heard then, like John Martyn, The Pentangle and Gryphon have undoubtedly shaped the development of Dan’s highly individual and eclectic style.READ MORE

my digital effects

effects for my acoustic instruments 

My dulcimers have natural sounding pickups, which feed the excellent Boss DD-500 delay unit.  This box processes the signal to the highest of audio standards, so the integrity of the acoustic sound is preserved.  The delay effects that I use for dulcimer, with a few exceptions, are subtle and you might only notice them by their absence.  They add warmth and place the music in a natural sound space.
