During the warm season in Ashland, Daniel performs regularly in Lithia Park. You’ll find him in a spot beyond the duck pond as you enter the Park from the Plaza. You’ll see a stone wall and some benches, a little meadow to your left, and the Creek to your right. Daniel generally arrives at around noon at that spot, and sets up facing those benches. Usually he will be there for a couple of hours. His days to play are almost always Thursday through Sunday, and sometimes Tuesday and Wednesday, too. You can find his schedule on the calendar.
Coming in September is a new non-profit organization with the mission of creating seminal musical work inspired by the courage and heroic journeys of people in the Rogue Valley. These will be musical portraits, performed by an eclectic ensemble of strings, piano and winds. The process of discovering the people, creating their music and following their story will be documented on film with Daniel as producer and Gary Lundgren, of Joma Films, as director.
Daniel is composing songs with Jeffri Lynn Carrington, a gifted singer, most often using words from poets such as William Stafford, Rumi, Naomi Shihab Nye and Derek Walcott. The songs are accompanied by cello, piano and banjo. Daniel and Jeffri are in the process of recording that work. Stay tuned to here some examples...
