Out of the Blue Livestream Series with Dan Blakeslee

Tuesday - December, 22 @ 7:00pm

Blue presents: Out of the Blue with Dan Blakeslee!

Maine native Dan Blakeslee began playing his music on street corners and subway tunnels in 1995 eventually leading him to tour cross country several times. In 2015 his dream of playing Newport Folk Festival became a reality, where Bob Dylan went electric 50 years earlier. He has shared the stage with Josh Ritter, Old 97's, Kimya Dawson, The Lumineers, Brown Bird, Deer Tick, and Dawes to name a few.

Dan Blakeslee's new album "Christmasland Jubilee" his 10th album to date will be released on December 1, 2020.
“There is a feeling of antiquity to the songs, which are written in a poetic language that could have been taken from Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” (Boston Globe)
