Weber is an award-winning songwriter, and is described as “The Classic Mid-Life Overnight Sensation.” An engaging performer with a gift for storytelling, he won the prestigious Winfield NewSong contest for “Oh Woody,” his tribute to Woody Guthrie, and is a rare three-time finalist in the legendary Kerrville New Folk competition. A former National Park Service Ranger, his songs have been described as “reminiscent of early John Prine” and “insightful and awfully funny.” Legendary folk troubadour Ramblin’ Jack Elliott said, “I love Dan’s songs, and he tells really good stories.” Born in Rochester, New York, he now lives in Vancouver, Washington.
