2022 sees Dan continue to develop and evolve his offering whilst showing how he carefully nurtured his creativity during an imposed stay in Japan from January 2020 to June 2021. This year’s releases include The Glass Age – a collaboration with Swedish producer Gustaf Ljunggren, which looks at how our human experience and ways of connecting have changed through the ‘glass’ of virtual communication. Another, his Arts Council funded song-cycle Voices From The Cones, draws stories of community and social and industrial history from the oral archive of workers from the Stourbridge Glassworks, comes out this autumn. Alongside this, Dan’s blossoming collaboration with New York hammered dulcimer player Max ZT will bear fruit in 2023 with their album Ten Steps.
2022 is the International Year of Glass, and at these shows Dan will present songs from new album The Glass Age and forthcoming release Voices From The Cones – springing from opposite ends of the ‘glass’ spectrum.
