Canadian singer-songwriter and historian Dan McKinnon plays at Live at the Star Club tonight, Thursday 20 October at St Andrew’s-in-the-Square, Glasgow.
Prior to his gig, Dan will have a chat and perhaps play a few songs in studio 1 with Bill Morris after 4.00pm.
Thirty years of performing and six recordings later, from the coffeehouses, pubs, and bars of his early beginnings in Atlantic Canada, Dan “blessed with a gorgeous baritone voice, and an exceptional command of phrasing, light and shade” (David Kidman, The Living Tradition, October 2006), continues to convey his “finely crafted songs” to audiences through his yearly tours in the UK and performances in and around the Canadian Maritimes. Recent forays into Ontario, the USA, as well as a tour of South Eastern Australia in 2007 have only furthered to cement Dan’s commitment and passion to the songs and stories of his Atlantic Canadian home.
Homeward Bound part 1 – Thursday 20 October with Bill Morris 3.00-5.00pm.
