BagHead is the songwriting project of Dashville native, Daniel T Johnston. His songs deliver an emotional fire, with big choruses, stirring lyrics and a powerful voice. When accompanied by his star studded band of 8, including a beautiful 4-piece choir, the songs take flight to another musical realm. (The Old Bar show will be a 5 piece band)
"Baghead have been slowly but surely building a cult following around the pub and festival circuit with their anthemic, sweetly swaying yet classically muscular brand of rock & roll that owes as much to the subtleties of vocal doo-wop groups of the 60s as it does to the sledgehammer barn-burners of Springsteen and Seger. The measure of an original band is how they can hook a new crowd with that familiar warm and fuzzy feeling, even though they are hearing the tunes for the first time. Baghead have that feelgood juice in bucketsful."
