DAN NASH & CUCA VIDAL
Dan Nash’s music harks back to the roots of early rent party/juke playing. Dan encompasses the whole acoustic blues genre from the rough-edge bottleneck blues of the Mississippi Delta to the intricate finger-picking styles of Texas and the Carolinas. He focuses on rare and standard blues classics by bluesmen such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker and Lightnin’ Hopkins.
Dan & Annette have been teaching together since 2012 and love bringing the worlds of music and dance together. When it comes to blues music history, Dan knows his stuff! We've never met someone more dedicated to their art. Dan loves to play for dancers and is always eager to figure out why we move to the music the way we do - which coincides nicely with Annette's interest in the music, the playing technique and the history of the blues. Covering anything from blues styles to rhythms, from structure to musicality, Dan and Annette will aim to bridge the gap between bandstand and dance floor.
