The Jerry Douglas Band
Dobro master and 14-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar: elevating, transforming, and reinventing the instrument in countless ways. In addition to being widely recognized as the foremost master of the Dobro, Jerry Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording artist whose output incorporates elements of bluegrass, country, rock, jazz, blues and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.
Called “dobro’s matchless contemporary master,” by The New York Times, fourteen-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas is one of the most innovative recording artists in music, both as a solo artist and member of groundbreaking bands including J.D. Crowe & the New South, the Country Gentlemen, Boone Creek, the Grammy-winning The Earls of Leicester, and Strength In Numbers. Douglas’ distinctive sound graces more than 1500 albums, including discs released by Garth Brooks, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Earl Scruggs, and Ray Charles, among many others.
Since 1998, he’s been a key member of “Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas”, touring extensively and co-producing and playing on a series of platinum albums. He has produced albums for Krauss, the Del McCoury Band, Maura O’Connell, and Jesse Winchester and is is co-Music Director of the acclaimed BBC TV series Transatlantic Sessions, and his latest solo album Traveler features guest appearances by such notable friends as Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons, and Eric Clapton, among others.
As he continues his incalculable influence on Americana, bluegrass and their many related genres, Douglas forges as a true pioneer in American music.
Danny has been touring since the age of 17, learning his craft on the road, playing and living in New York, Nashville, New Orleans and Chicago, and has extensive experience on the European & Scandinavian circuits. Burns’ influences not only come from his traditional upbringing, but also from legendary singer/songwriters such as John Martyn, Van Morrison, Richard Thompson, and Christy Moore.
This Donegal man has drawn great inspiration from the culture and passion of New Orleans, which he connected with soon after first arriving there, rapidly establishing a loyal fan base. He has recorded and performed with legendary New Orleans musicians George Porter, Jr. (The Meters) and Mean Willie Green (Neville Brothers Band, Bob Dylan).
Burns took part in the historic songwriters’ night at the Bluebird Cafe Nashville TN, home to such songwriters as Townes Van Zant, Steve Earle, and Guy Clark. Danny was also featured in the critically acclaimed documentary about Irish legend, Shane MacGowan, “The Fairytale of New York.” Closer to home, some of the Irish Groups that Danny Burns has performed with include The Hot House Flowers, Kila, Damien Dempsey, Paddy Casey, Slide, Solas, and Karen Casey.
