Australian Blues|Roots|Gospel artist Dan Hopkins plays a punchy brand of modern roots that has a distinct delta flavour with gospel overtones. Dan creates an experience that could be described as Ash Grunwald, Eric Bibb and Paul Kelly meeting down at the crossroads. This culminates in an emotionally driven journey down a sweetly plucked but often dirty slide guitar borne road across the Southern blues idiom.
Winner of the Australian Blues Music Festival Busking Contest in 2016, Dan's dynamic finger style blues has recently enlivened audiences for Wendy Matthews, Mental as Anything and Sydney Blues Challenge winner (2014) Darren Jack.
Dan's smooth rich vocal tone, his dynamic finger style blues and dexterity on the slide guitar mixed with poignant lyrics create a highly versatile performer not to be missed.
On the back of Dan’s latest release, ‘Where my baby belongs', Dan is heading to Flow Bar.
