Description Join GRAMMY nominated folksinger Dan Schatz for a very special evening in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Dan is a folksinger, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, author and producer whose work combines deep roots in tradition with a strong sense of community and social justice. His work on Singing Through the Hard Times - a Tribute to Utah Phillips (Righteous Babe, 2009) earned him a GRAMMY nomination for Best Traditional Folk Album. Dan's most recent solo project is a beautiful CD/ book combination which brings songs of hope, meaning, and community together with written reflections informed by his years in the Unitarian Universalist ministry. A typical evening with Dan will include both traditional and new songs played on guitars, banjo, autoharps, and other instruments, music of working people and music of the human spirit, and plenty of opportunities for chorus singing. In the words of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, "Dan Schatz sings traditional songs and contemporary gems that sound like they've been polished forever." The concert begins at 7:00, and tickets are $10 donation. Dan will stay in Harrisburg to lead services at the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg the following morning. It should be a grand weekend of folk music and fun!

“The last time I ran across Dan Schatz was when reviewing the superb Singing through the Hard Times—A Tribute to Utah Philips…, an outstanding collective of musicians (Schatz included), honoring the late folk legend. That effort rightfully earned him a Grammy nomination. Now, he's stepped back to concentrate on his own work in a marvelous CD/book combination that features not only his tunes but also writings and commentary. The Song and the Sigh is a time machine back to the American and European folk wave of the 60s and 70s, when the rime of much older days still hung nicely on the movement….”
