Fog Holler vs Dan German
Eintritt Vvk 10€
Mit fesselnden Melodien, die das Ohr fangen, und aufeinander abgestimmten Outfits, die ins Auge fallen, ist Fog Holler eine schnell wachsende Sensation in Bluegrass und akustischer Musik. Fog Hollers virtuoser Stil paart ehrliche Poesie und scharfe Harmonien, die an die Stanley Brothers und die Blue Sky Boys erinnern.
Well-travelled troubadour, Dan German, has opened for C.W Stoneking, Elliott Brood, Bob Wayne & Scott Kelly to name a few. Raised on Bruce Springsteen, it shows. Dan is a proper storyteller. His songs have the detail and intimacy of The Felice Brothers at their finest and his strong narratives harbour a darkness akin to Townes Van Zandt.
The thread of the rambling man runs through his work in the same way it runs through the man himself. He's lived and toured all over the world. He’s gotten good at leaving and he’s gotten good at writing about it. These are traveling songs; songs about being lost; living hard, living free and dying; singer-songwriter stuff but the harder kind.
Dan is currently recording his second album, “Happy Songs”, with his favourite ramshackle outfit of over-qualified musicians in The Netherlands following on from his highly acclaimed debut, “Never Settle”.
Plus, he has recently teamed up with Quentin Dean of 'Them Peckin Boys' to hit the road for a string of live shows across The Netherlannds, The UK and Germany, blending German's powerful voice and alt-folk song-writing and story-telling with Dean's banjo-twangin' country and bluegrass.
