EC-CHAP "Acoustic Artist Series": Ramblin' Dan Stevens (Blues)
TICKETS $12.00 IN ADVANCE (ONLINE) / $15.00 AT THE DOOR
Ramblin' Dan Stevens performs a mix of traditional finger style blues, Americana and originals and has entertained audiences throughout the United States, Germany, UK, Canada and US Virgin Islands. His unique style of "bottleneck" slide playing includes use of a homemade, three stringed "Cigar Box Guitar" and one stringed "Diddly Bow", both primitive blues instruments.
A finalist in the International Blues Challenge on Beale St. in Memphis TN and protege of the legendary folk and blues icon Dave Van Ronk, Dan has been lauded as a raconteur and for the authenticity of his approach. Dave’s career has recently been highlighted by the release of the the Coen Brothers movie, “Inside Llewyn Davis”, set in the Greenwich Village scene in the sixties. Also, Dan plays regularly in the New York City Subway System in locations such as Times Square and Grand Central Terminal. (Dan Stevens)
