Emmy Winning, Tony and Golden Globe Nominated actor Jeff Daniels invites you to join him for an intimate live streamed concert full of original music, stellar guitar work and stories from his long career.
Between his over sixty movies, Emmy winning television and most recent Tony Nominated work on Broadway as Atticus Finch in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, Daniels found time to play over five hundred clubs and performing arts centers in the U.S. He has studied with Stefan Grossman and Keb Mo, has been invited to sit in with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt and David Bromberg and in 2012, considered himself blessed when Martin Guitar Co. introduced an OM Jeff Daniels Custom Artist Edition acoustic guitar.
Since 2000, Jeff has played such venues as The Birchmere, Club Passim, Cafe Lena, New York City’s 54 Below and Birdland, the City Winery in New York and Nashville, The Barns at Wolf Trap, Austin’s Cactus Cafe, Ram’s Head Tavern in Annapolis, Houston’s Mucky Duck’s, the Dakota Room in Minneapolis, The Ark in Ann Arbor, Chicago’s Old School of Folk Music, Seattle’s Third Door, Alaska’s Latitude 62 in Talkeetna, as well as numerous other opera houses and PACs throughout the country. With his son’s band, the Ben Daniels Band, he has toured both coasts. He has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Joe Ely, Cheryl Wheeler, Guy Clark, Christine Lavin, Keb Mo’ and Bruce Hornsby. He performed at David Bromberg’s 70th Birthday Bash at NYC’s Town Hall. In 2012, the Martin Guitar Company began selling the OM Jeff Daniels Custom Artist Edition Guitar. He also narrated their award winning documentary, “The Ballad Of The Dreadnought.”
“In 1976, I moved to New York City to become an actor. What I didn’t plan on was being so influenced by so many Off Broadway playwrights. In particular, Lanford Wilson, who would later go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for his play TALLEY’S FOLLY. Lanford taught me so much about the writing process, imagery, the love/hate relationship one has with such a solitary pursuit and the endless rewriting as you search for a better way to say it. In Hollywood, the joke is if you ask any actor what he really wants to do, he’ll say, “Direct.” Not me. I wanted to write. So I did. With a guitar in my hands.”
