NEW TRIO ALBUM AND TOUR
DAN WALSH TRIO – TUESDAY NIGHT SESSION

I am ecstatic to announce that my new album ‘Trio’ will be released in May accompanied by a UK tour. Last year saw our first tour and it was a great success and I am so pleased and proud to be working with two of my favourite musicians and people – Ciaran Algar on fiddle and Nic Zuppardi on mandolin. We will be playing new material from the album, a few old favourites and a few brand new items as well. Come and see us – tickets and dates below:

BANJO TAB BOOK
I’m also delighted to say that for the first time, I will be releasing a banjo tablature book. I’ll be returning to the Midwest Banjo Camp in the US (see below) in June and last year so many people asked me about a book I thought it was about time I did one! It will be a collection of tabs from four of my albums – The Same But Different, Incidents and Accidents, Verging On The Perpendicular and the new album Trio. It is aimed at intermediate to advanced players primarily but hopefully there’s something for everyone! There’s plenty of instructions to accompany the tab. More information to follow on release dates, where to get it etc but I thought I’d give you the good news now 🙂
USA TOUR IN JUNE
Delighted to be heading back for my third tour of the USA. I’ll be returning to the Midwest Banjo Camp in Olivet, Michigan to play and teach alongside some of the world’s finest banjo players (no pressure…) and then heading to California for a little run of gigs. Dates as follows, would be lovely to see you:

UFQ X2
Finally, very excited to tell you that over the summer and in a few gigs in the autumn my band Urban Folk Quartet will be augmented! UFQ x2 will hit the festivals featuring an extra fiddle, bass and a horn section as part of our tenth anniversary celebrations. We’ve had the first couple of rehearsals and it sounds amazing! We can’t wait to unleash it on the world – head over to theufq.com and check the gigs out.
Thank you all so much for the continued support. It’s a crazy life I’ve chosen, and you all make it possible and I am forever grateful.

Best wishes,
Danjo
