Into the Flow
The DOMINION POST says INTO THE FLOW is an 'acoustic guitar masterpiece', 'drowns a sea of ears with guitar genius', and '...a must for the appreciative acoustic fanatics.' The skilled use of classical and steel string guitar animates the memories of river life, the county fair, the night passage of a river boat, and the light of our spiritual journey. The strains of fluid melody fill our senses with the image of a secret place and time, now forgotten. Dan has performed/recorded with Phil Keaggy (Grammy nominee and Dove award winner), Robin Kessenger (1985 National Flatpicking Champion), Nedra Talley Ross (Ronettes), Phil Madeira, Lance DeMers (Hannah's Prayer), John Fischer, Jenny Allinder, Ted Sandquist, and a number of others. Last year Dan was in Nashville to record new tracks for the re-issue of the Phil Keaggy Band's 1977 groundbreaking recording, 'Emerging' (now called 'Re-Emerging'). 'Into The Flow' features Dan on classical and steel string guitars offering a number of musical impressions based on events and experiences. It incorporates the meditative beauty of classical music with other finger-style guitar to describe the beauty and spirituality of our existence. There's also a little fun, just like at any good back-porch jam session. Occasional cello, celtic harp, and other instruments enhance the ambiance.
