'Trad material presented with considerable classical skill on guitar and mountain dulcimer, but gently enhanced with technology. One of his best tricks is to use a long echo and then play a duet with himself. In other hands this would come over as an amusing gimmick - the effect from Dan is seriously musical. CAUTION: doesn't show off. You only realise how good this man is after you've been listening a while and you realise you've been from trad to world to pop, through a bit of techno and home again in a sort of warm flowing stream.'
