Dan Sumner supported Dave Swarbrick at DHFC.
Not many musicians include an Oatcake recipe with their CDs, but Kent singer/songwriter Dan Sumner appears to come from a different age. He grew up listening to his Dad’s record collection, falling in love with John Martyn and Richard Thompson records.
He picked up the guitar at the age of 11, and went on to hone a unique style, fusing his folk roots with elements of blues, rock and jazz into crafted arrangements. After a couple of years cutting his teeth on the London Folk scene, he moved to the south of Spain in search of brighter skies, but moved back a couple of years later with a new found lust for music.
Dan’s new EP ‘The way we did’ is on sale now from iTunes and Amazon MP3. CDs are also sold at Dan’s gigs and at The Union Store, Lewes.
