Virtuoso Fingerstyle Guitar
Considered one of the most talented, promising, and original young guitarists performing today, Dan has shared the stage with many of the best fingerstyle guitarists on the planet including Phil Keaggy, John Knowles, Brent Mason, Johnny Hiland, and the late Pete Huttlinger (who produced Dan’s critically-acclaimed first CD, “At First Sight” in 2013). Dan’s second acclaimed solo CD, “Tradition Pickin,’” was released in 2015 and paid tribute to the Mount Rushmore of Fingerpicking Masters: Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, and Jerry Reed.
Dan’s popularity as a performer continues to grow as audiences across the country and in Europe discover his appealing blend of superb musicianship, a wide range of styles, and a warm, engaging stage presence that easily connects with people of all ages.
Jim Nichols is a consummate fingerstyle guitarist. He uses a thumbpick and fingers to play everything from Chet Atkins style to modern jazz. His impressive credentials include appearances on tv, radio, concert halls and clubs including Carnegie Hall, The Tonight Show and the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine, France.
