Award Winning Songwriter Dan Weber has been described as “The Classic Mid-Life Overnight Sensation” after bursting onto the festival scene in 2010 to a standing ovation at the Sisters Folk Festival for his engaging set in the Dave Carter songwriting contest. Since then he has become a rare 3 time finalist in the legendary Kerrville New Folk competition, a finalist in the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase, has had two top finishes in the Woody Guthrie songwriting contest and in 2015 won the prestigious Winfield, Kansas ‘NewSong’ contest for Oh Woody, his tribute to Woody Guthrie, which rose to #2 on the Folk charts in 2015. Dan quickly wins over audiences with his natural charisma, upbeat performances, authentic songwriting, and off-the-cuff hilarious stories from the many roads he’s traveled. His songs have been described as "Guthrie-esque and reminiscent of early John Prine." Dan tours throughout the US and has performed at numerous festivals including the Tucson Folk Festival, the Connecticut Folk Festival, and the South Florida Folk Festival. He has released two albums and is working on a third.
