Former National Park Service Ranger Dan Weber brings his award winning songs and hilarious stories from the many roads he’s traveled to Asheville’s Isis Music Hall and Restaurant.
Award Winning songwriter Dan Weber has been described as “The Classic Mid-Life Overnight Sensation” after bursting onto the festival scene at the age of 40 to a standing ovation at the Sisters Folk Festival. Since then he’s toured extensively across the country becoming a rare 3 time finalist in the legendary Kerrville ‘New Folk’ competition, had 2 top finishes in the Woody Guthrie songwriting contest and won the prestigious Winfield, Kansas ‘NewSong’ contest for ‘Oh Woody’, his anthemic tribute to Woody Guthrie, rose to #2 on the Folk charts in 2015.
An ex-Park Ranger, former Eagle Scout, Altar boy and lifelong ‘Deadhead’, Weber began performing later in life but quickly won over audiences with his natural charisma, upbeat performances, authentic songwriting, and off-the-cuff hilarious stories from the many roads he’s traveled. None other than legendary Folk troubadour Ramblin’ Jack Elliott said “I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good stories.”
Originally from New York and now living in Vancouver, WA, Weber’s songs have been described as “Guthrie-esque and reminiscent of early John Prine” and “A rare combination of wit, emotion and Harry Chapin-esque imagery.” The UK’s Maverick Magazine said: “4 Stars: The touch of a true Master Craftsman songwriter.”
