When you think of “grassroots” and “down to Earth,” you don’t normally think of a movie star. You especially don't think of a movie star the caliber of Jeff Daniels. Yet that is exactly what Jeff has accomplished with his second CD Grandfather’s Hat. With the follow-up album to Live and Unplugged, Daniels has proven that he is not an actor who sings, but an accomplished singer/songwriter whose musical talent does not require the support of his acting.
Since 2000, Jeff has played venues such as The Barn at Wolf Trap in VA, Club Passim in Boston, MA, New York City’s 54 Below, City Winery in Chicago, New York and Nashville, Austin’s Cactus Cafe, the Ram’s Head
Tavern in Annapolis, MD, Mucky Duck’s in Houston, The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI, Chicago’s Old School of Folk Music, Chicago’s S.P.A.C.E., Seattle’s Third Door, Alaska’s Blue Loon in Fairbanks and Latitude 62 in Talkeetna, AK, as well as numerous opera houses and PACs throughout the country. He has toured both coasts with his son’s band, the Ben Daniels Band, and has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Joe Ely, Guy Clark, Keb Mo’, and Bruce Hornsby. He performed at David Bromberg’s 70th BirthdayBash at NYC’s Town Hall and he has studied under Stefan Grossman.
