Dan's 85th album is here!!

The Covid-19 shutdowns cancelled all of Dan's solo as well as Dan and Laurel tour dates from March 2020 onward, but he quickly pivoted into recording mode and before "The Shed" burned down in the August 2020 CZU Lightening Fire, he'd used his time off the road to record 15 new albums featuring all original music and the full range of instruments he plays, from guitar and drums, to bass, mandolin, ukulele, lap slide, banjo, and many more…

Despite his lack of a dedicated recording space since the wildfire swept through, he now offers his first release of 2021, and his 85th album to date! "That Old Open Road" is an all acoustic album recorded in a friend's office with a borrowed bass and the gear he'd thankfully managed to evacuate. Enjoy!
