Dan Walsh and Alistair Anderson

"Nifty fun with bags of wow factor"

"A tangible magic"

Dan Walsh and Alistair Anderson

Two of the most dynamic musicians in folk music strike sparks off each other in an exciting cross generational, duo.  With repertoire ranging from Bluegrass songs to Northumbrian rants; from Jazzy ballads to Old Time reels their performance combines high energy with world class musicianship.

Alistair Anderson (Concertina & Northumbrian Pipes) has been blazing a trail for the music of Northumberland and beyond for close on 5 decades while Dan Walsh (Banjo, Guitar and Vocals) is fast establishing himself as one of the finest young performers around. Both open-minded, thoughtful, musicians with love of both the traditional and the distinctly “off the wall,” they share a chemistry  which delights audiences and builds a very special energy on stage
