DAN WALSH Returns To New Zealand

'The real deal, a demon picker' - Uncut
'Absolutely terrific' - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
'Eclectically inspired and consistently brilliant' - Froots

Fresh from a nomination for BBC Folk Awards Musician of the Year and off the back of the busiest world tour of a successful career, Dan Walsh returns for a third trip to New Zealand to promote his latest critically acclaimed album Verging On The Perpendicular. After two previous NZ tours including headline appearances at the Auckland Folk Festival, Dan combines his first tour of Australia with another trip to a country already close to his heart.

Nominated for best musician at last year's BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines 'virtuoso playing and winning songwriting' (MORNING STAR). Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves - all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.

New album 'Verging on the Perpendicular' is Walsh's fourth solo album and again has received much critical acclaim and is accompanied by a hectic touring schedule taking in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Both solo and as a member of the award winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage with Imelda May, Joss Stone and the Levellers, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.
