Saturday, April 20                               7:30 PM

  Dan Navarro


Dan Navarro is truly one of the most diverse songwriters among us today.  From his authorship of the Grammy-nominated song “We Belong” for Pat Benatar, to his writing for Austin legend Rusty Wier, with Jackson Browne and Keb’ Mo’ wedged in between; Dan has come to be one of the most respected and sought after collaborators in the music business.

As we have gotten to know Dan personally, through our activities with Folk Alliance International, we have been drawn to him and his music on many occasions.  When musicians gather, at conferences in an environment of their peers, we would so often find the artists we came to hear in one place.  They were all playing with Dan Navarro.  If you were in a song circle or jam session and Dan was there, no one cared what time it was. 

You may have never heard Dan’s music before, but those of you who were here for his first will attest to the reasons we ask him back.  The music Dan brings to the table is outstanding.  We asked him to bring it to our friends in our living room and he has finally agreed.  Dan will be here on Saturday, April 20.  You need to be here too.

For over 20 years Dan collaborated and toured with Eric Lowen.  Lowen & Navarro is a name well known in the acoustic Americana world of music.  Dan and Eric were a constant fixture with regular concert and festival appearances nationally until Eric was diagnosed with ALS in 2004.  As Eric’s health declined it became harder for them to continue touring together.  They last performed together in 2009.  This tragic disease took Erick from us in 2012.

As a solo artist Dan continues to tour.  And His collaborative work has included recording with Neil Young and Jon Anderson of Yes, along with Andrea Bocelli.  Beyond his musical work, Dan may have one of the most familiar voices you can never attach a name to.  He has been heard as a “voice actor” in hundreds of movies and TV shows.  This has included Happy Feet, Ice Age, Rio and Family Guy.

But it is as a singer/songwriter and guitarist that Dan Navarro’s work continues to keep us listening.  If you already know Dan’s music we know you will plan to join us.  If Dan’s music is new to you we are delighted to introduce him.  We have never steered you wrong before.  So, plan on joining us.
