'I will miss the trumpets and the drums' is the latest and finest distillation yet of Steve Dawson's joyous effort to combine folk, country, pop and soul into an organic musical whole - a goal he's been working on both solo and with his long running band, Dolly Varden, for over a decade. Originally from Hailey, Idaho, Dawson has lived and played music in Chicago since the early 90's, first with the alt country band Stump the Host and later with Dolly Varden and solo. He's sung his songs from coast to coast in the USA and in the UK, France, Spain and the Netherlands. Dawson also teaches songwriting at the legendary Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago
