DAN THE BANJO MAN in Concert
Saturday 19 MAY 2018
Nominated for best musician at the 2017 BBC Folk Awards.
“Dan Walsh combines 'virtuoso playing and winning songwriting'“
“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.”
“Dan’s new album 'Verging on the Perpendicular' is his 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.”
If you saw Dan before with his group ‘Urban Quartet’ at the Parish Hall you’ll realize just how good he is & want to rebook. If you haven’t well you’d better, as he is seriously superb.
You can U-tube him, audio-sample Dan on his web site or even better, come & see him live in Chebsey.

As always there will be a licensed bar and light refreshments will be provided.
In addition to the usual uses that are made of the Hall, occasional Afternoon Teas have been held on Saturday afternoons. Any additional occasions will be advised as plans are made but we know already that there will be one on Saturday 15th December 2018.
In 2016 we were pleased to make our facilities available for a private wedding reception on behalf of a couple from Eccleshall. Taking place in a marquee erected in our field as well as using all the other facilities of the Hall, the whole day was a great success and will we hope lead to further such events in the future.
