‘Dan the Banjo Man’ annual return to The Met Studio and to play his home town is extra special this time around as he comes as part of a trio. Nominated for best musician at the BBC Folk Awards, banjo maestro Dan Walsh combines 'virtuoso playing and winning songwriting' (MORNING STAR). This exciting new trio sees him team up with award winning fiddler Ciaran Algar and long time collaborator Nic Zuppardi on mandolin. At the heart of the trio's sound is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is sure to be a truly memorable live show featuring three of the most in demand musicians on the folk scene today.
In contrast as support we have a return for the wonderful Kyshona. Originally from South Carolina, Kyshona has been resident in Nashville since 2014. Her songwriting skills and powerful, emotional voice are demonstrated on her latest two albums 'Go' and 'The Ride'.
