Guest Artist -- Dan Weber

is an award-winning songwriter. He has performed extensively throughout the country and is a gifted storyteller, winning over audiences with his natural charisma, upbeat performances, authentic songwriting, and off-the-cuff hilarious stories. His songs have been described as "Guthrie-esque and reminiscent of early John Prine." At Singtime he will perform a short concert and lead workshops on songwriting and on an assortment of songs collected by Alan Lomax. More information at his website.
