Renowned York based musician Dan Webster and his amazing band return to the Crescent in York on Friday Jan 11th with special guests The Southern Wild.
Dan Webster is described as ‘one of the U.K’s best kept musical secrets and one not to miss!’ and an ‘An insightful lyricist with a great voice’ (Acoustic Magazine). Dan is a road-seasoned English singer-songwriter, his music is influenced by the sounds and storytelling traditions of American and British Folk music, which he uniquely blends into his own distinct fusion of Folk and Americana.
‘Dan Webster’s subtle exploration of the human heart resonated with me after each spin of his fine new record… which draws assuredly on folk and country roots from across the Atlantic but remains assertively northern English.’ RnR ****
‘Webster proves to be a master story teller and fine entertainer’ County Music Magazine ****
‘Dan Webster played an impressive set at Maverick… performing under his name a permanent band… well-honed violin of Emily Lawler and cello of Rachel Brown weaving interesting lines and counter melodies… incorporates folk and bluegrass but also draws on Springsteen…’ Country Music People Magazine
‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville – beautiful, a malleable mash of folk, country and Alt rock.’ Americana UK 9/10
‘His delivery is passionate, this album boasts a big, big heart.’ Folk Radio UK
Dan is a formidable live performer, having played too many shows to count over the years, and has shared the bill with acts such as The Levellers, Seth Lakeman, Glen Tilbrook, Martin Carthy and Midge Ure to name a few. Live, Dan inspires attention; pulling you into his work with finely crafted melodies and lyrics – delivered with a powerful and honest vocal…fantastic solo, or with his band.
His most recent CD, Devil Sky, was launched at The Crescent back in August and has since received huge critical acclaim
