Dan Burnett: Hebden Bridge Blues Festival 2014
Dan Burnett was a tour de force and his gentle and charming stage style had the audience locked in – indeed at one point he quite accurately expressed delight at playing to 'a listening audience'. This is a distinguished talent and it was good to hear rock solid left hand alternated with slow wistful originals and he really uses the whole of the keyboard.
Dan has played alongside many of the greats but is only now about to produce a solo CD 'Storyville' which you should get your hands on. I do hope he includes “You're gonna shine one day” which was a moving and eloquent self-penned piece worthy of Randy Newman. Solo blues keyboards are alive, well and in talented hands.
