Dan started his career with folk rock band ‘Ocean Colour Scene’ touring the world and playing headline slots at major festivals for over a decade. He co-founded the band ‘Merrymouth’ with Simon Fowler. The band featured award-winning musicians, John McCusker, Andy Cutting and even a guest appearance from Chas Hodges (Chas and Dave).
Dan re-formed the legendary Music Hall double act ‘Cosmotheka’ with his father Dave.
Cosmotheka were huge on the folk scene throughout the 80’s and 90’s until Dan’s uncle, ‘Al’ sadly passed away.
Cosmotheka toured the world with Chas and Dave, had several of their own Radio Two programmes and made multiple TV appearances. Dan and father, Dave (one half of the original duo) decided to take the band back out on the road and had great fun headlining Bromyard folk festival, Whitby, Towersey, Sidmouth, Broadstairs and Upton to name but a few.
Dan is taking his own show on the road. The show features music from all the bands he’s been involved with, the often hilarious stories he’s amassed along the way and materiel from the album he is working on due for release.
