Dan Weber will return to Doverlaff on Saturday, March 23 at 7:30. As many of you know, Dan and I drug each other out of our respective basements to start playing open mics and whatever almost 10 years ago. Thus, I feel very invested in Dan’s success as a songwriter and a performer. And he has done quite well.
“Dan played a tremendous show! Top rate performance: soulful, sad, funny and everything in between. I’d recommend Dan to anyone. One of the friendliest guys you’ll ever meet too!”
– Matt Hough, Lair of the Swamp Fox Concerts
Here is a blurb from his website:
“In a few short years since his debut to a standing ovation at the Sisters Folk Festival, former National Park Ranger Dan Weber has become a sought after national touring artist for his upbeat and engaging performances, insightful songs, and hilarious off-the-cuff stories. None other than legendary Folk troubadour Ramblin’ Jack Elliott said “I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good stories.”
He’s released two critically acclaimed CD’s, Ash and Bonewith the instant classic ‘Hank and Jesus’, and What I’m Lookin’ For featuring ‘Oh Woody’, his tribute to Woody Guthrie that rose to #2 on the Folk music charts. And he’s toured extensively across the U.S., becoming a rare 3 time finalist in the legendary Kerrville ‘New Folk’ competition, had 2 top finishes in the Woody Guthrie songwriting contest and won the prestigious Winfield, Kansas ‘NewSong’ contest. The future looks even brighter with more great Festivals, Shows, and intimate House Concerts to come.”
Some quotes about Dan’s music:
“4 Stars: Has you hanging on to every word. That’s the touch of a true Master Craftsman Songwriter.”
– Alan Cackett, Maverick Magazine
“Weber’s writing is as strong as any in the Contemporary Folk community. ‘ Goodbye to Dad’ is one of the best original tunes that I have heard in a long time.”
– Christopher Anderson, Victory Review: Acoustic Music Magazine
We hope you can join us for this stellar show.
