-“While many players use the banjo to show what they can do, Danny Barnes uses it to show who he is” – Brian Swenk, Bluegrass Today

Danny Barnes is already known as an iconic American musician, a banjo playing innovator who’s earned high praise from everybody from Bill Frisell and Dave Matthews to Steve Martin, who presented Danny with the Prize for Excellence in Banjo in 2015. From the days with his groundbreaking Austin band, the Bad Livers, to his two decade solo career experimenting with electronic music, jazz, old time string band music and more, he’s a genre bending, rule breaking original who prefers to color outside the lines.

-“It is heaven and earth, It is Americana from the back porch to the pulpit" – Dave Matthews

Now, with Stove Up, out March 3, 2017, he’s showing us that it was always a choice, that he’s always had the chops to play straight ahead bluegrass banjo with the best of them. With a top-flight band backing him up, Danny turns in an amazing set of tunes that demonstrate his respect for tradition and his commitment to his own musical voice.

-“Danny Barnes is the great American un-sung hero. Whether playing guitar, banjo or singing - his talent is limitless." – Sam Bush
