Country Fried Rock alum, Danny Barnes, is a smart, interesting, experienced guy, who happens to be an incredible musician pushing the edges of what a banjo can do and challenging how listeners may think it should sound. His lyrics are usually hilarious, but often sweet and thoughtful, too. I have seen him play with Yonder Mountain String Band and Dave Matthews Band, solo with just his banjo, accompanied by Larry and Jenny Keel, and with his computer and electronic pedals.
Barnes will play Lingua Musica Live near Asheville, NC. Info here.
