Dan Stevens is an acoustic blues and American roots music artist whose style centers around the acoustic fingerpicking tradition learned from bluesman Paul Rishell and the late folk legend Dave Van Ronk with whom he studied in NYC. Stevens' repertoire includes soulful originals and many bottleneck slide tunes in the spirit of the legendary blues masters. He has toured the US and parts of Europe and has appeared with James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, Charlie Daniels and more.
