RAMBLIN' DAN STEVENS

ACOUSTIC ARTIST SERIES: AMERICANA / BLUES

Tickets $12.00

Available online or cash at the door

Dan Stevens, protege of Dave Van Ronk, and Clayton Allen are winners of the CT Blues Challenge Competition and represented the state in the International Blues Challenge on Beale St. in Memphis TN, advancing to the semi-finals . 

In a melding of diverse blues styles,  Dan and Clayton have forged a unique sound, representing a wide variety of traditionally based fingerpicking with a tinge of primitive blues and early blues rock and roll.  Clayton’s raw energy and emotional delivery contrast with Dan’s soulful approach creating a dynamic mix. A dose of Diddly Bow and Cigar Box guitar backed with a driving rhythm and gospel influenced vocals convey an engaging rock bottom authenticity.  Be prepared for an occasional twist as the duo adds spice with an addition of popular classics as well as some chestnuts from their deep well of roots country music [http://ramblindan.weebly.com].

Experience Ramblin' Dan Stevens - American Bluesman live in our intimate historic setting. This concert is a part of The Packing House "Acoustic Artist Series" hosted by the Friends of The Mill Works. Snacks and soft drinks available. "BYOB" (Beer and Wine ONLY).
