TOUTED as one of the finest banjo players in the UK as well as being a superb singer, songwriter and guitarist, Dan Walsh is described as "the real deal" (Uncut) and "taking the banjo into the stratosphere" (Froots) with a unique and eclectic style taking in folk, funk, bluegrass, jazz, rock and even Arabic.

You can see him on Thursday, March 21, at Eden Project Café, St Austell.

After three years of touring the UK as one half of award-nominated duo Walsh and Pound, Dan's returning to his solo gigs as well as fronting an all-new Dan Walsh band made up of award-winning musicians including Rachel Newton and drummer Adam Sinclair, whose credits range from the New York Dolls to The Unthanks.

He is also performing with the legendary Alistair Anderson and has recently appeared on stage and in the studio with Seth Lakeman, the Levellers, Martin Simpson and numerous others.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 from www.edenproject.com/cafe-in-st-austell
