Known across New England as a great musician, Dan Walker has an organic approach to creating and performing live acoustic music. Groove oriented and soul bound, his music has earned him opportunities to support Martin Sexton, Livingston Taylor, Merle Haggard, Roseanne Cash and Slaid Cleaves.
Continually working the gig schedule, he has received much praise for his voice and guitar picking. As one article has it “Dan Walker is quite simply one of the finest singer/songwriters on the Seacoast. He’s got a voice that belongs smack-dab in the middle of popular radio’s programming. A furious picker and relentless strummer with a knack of turning the body of his acoustic guitar into a glorified hand-drum,Walkeris the real deal.”
The Tore Down Blues Band
Comprised of three long time seacoast music scene veterans, Dan Walker (bass/vox), Paul “PJ” Donahue (drums) and Jim Dozet (guitar/vox), The Tore Down Blues Band (TDBB) is amply stocked with both vast performance experience and talent. Despite their name this versatile outfit is in no way limited to any specific genre although their collective affinity for the blues is apparent throughout their set and catalog. With backgrounds in rock, folk/americana, funk and jazz, just to name a few, these players deliver an eclectic array of classic covers and well-crafted original songs in every performance. Their passion for the music is evident in every note struck and lyric sung, drawing the audience in from the first song to the last. You can catch TDBB with constantly growing regularity at music clubs throughout New England.
