Dan McKinnon

This is a rare chance to see Dan McKinnon, Canada’s top folk singer deliver his extremely rich baritone voice and self-penned, carefully crafted songs. Dan’s unique combination of vocal and instrumental skills earn him high praise from critics, club-owners, festival organizers and fans from around the world.

Currently on tour in UK we are very lucky to book him at very short notice. He visited Aberystwyth seven years ago and for those that saw him then I am sure you will be back for another brilliant evening of music.

Dan is not to be missed.
