Saturday, April 8, 1 - 4pm
Live Music with Dan Bliss
This Kansas City musician's deep, rich acoustic guitar sounds and distinctive voice and style make for an entertaining afternoon in the cozy winery auditorium.
“In the world of contemporary fingerpicking oriented blues players, Dan Bliss is a standout. …a diverse and entertaining repertoire that includes country blues influenced originals, complex rags and swinging jazzy interpretations from the Great American Songbook.… On top of all this he is a tasteful songwriter with a sensitive down home lyrical approach.” Rhythms Magazine, Australia
“Dan Bliss’s hands are at harmonious odds. His left hand pulls, holds and hammers strings on his acoustic guitar while his right maintains a steady picking rhythm. Together they create some of the best blues standards and originals heard around the Lawrence-Kansas City area.” Journal World, Lawrence, KS
You can learn more about Dan and his music at his website here. http://www.danbliss.com/index.html
