Joni Mitchell in a coonskin cap? Well, not exactly. Dan's rich acoustic guitar textures are overlaid with poetic vocals displaying the expressive range of the music Dan calls "New Appalachian:"

At an early age, Dan spent hours listening to the few records on hand: Eddie Arnold, Fats Domino, Dinah Shore and Haydn's "Surprise" Symphony. The imprint on an impressionable young mind was profound, and you might say he never recovered.

Dan has performed/recorded with Phil Keaggy (Grammy nominee and Dove award winner), Robin Kessinger (1985 National Flatpicking Champion), Nedra Talley Ross (Ronettes), Phil Madeira (Nashville songwriter, recording artist), John Fischer, Jenny Allinder, Ted Sandquist and others.

The Dominion Post has described Dan's playing as "guitar genius", Ben Ohmart of Music Dish calls it "luscious."

"Dan Cunningham plays his guitar the way a man loves a woman---with heart and caring and affection." Richard Fuller
