Dan CrarySubmit your ears to the ”mindboggling” (Houston Chronicle) guitar playing of newgrass pioneer Dan Crary. A flatpicking stylist of great innovation and brilliance, Dan transcends the boundaries of style and genre.
 
During his youth in Kansas, Dan became interested in the type of steel-string, flat-top guitar favored by artists like Doc Watson. In 1968, he founded the Bluegrass Alliance with Vince Gill, Tony Rice, and Sam Bush, and used Watson’s style as a jumping-off point for innovation. During stints with fiddler Byron Berline and banjoist John Hickman, Dan polished his reputation as a master interpreter of traditional music while exploring bluegrass’ intersections with other genres. His projects have included collaborations with Béla Fleck and Mark O'Connor, among many others.
 
As featured on his recent CD, Perfect Storm, Dan’s trio, Thunderation, includes Steve Spurgin and Martin Stevens. Steve is a veteran of the folk, americana, and singer-songwriter scenes with a resonant voice and unrivaled story-songs. Multi-instrumentalist Martin’s  tasteful picking and smooth vocals have earned him a reputation as one of the hottest young talents on the Pacific Northwest bluegrass scene today.
