Singer Songwriter, Dan May, took “the Road Less Traveled…”

January 2020

Now in its 27th year, the Lansdowne Folk Club is one of the most popular stops on the folk music circuit, bringing in highly sought-after, unique, and talented folk, blues and acoustic artists.

This month’s featured performer, Dan May, has a story as unique as those he sings and writes about. His music career has taken more twists and turns than a corkscrew in a hurricane .

May has worked as a grave-digger, television cameraman, short-order cook, nuclear missile security guard, gas station attendant, ice cream truck driver, delivery man, amusement park worker and greenhouse laborer; all before the age of 25.

While studying music composition in college, he inadvertently stumbled upon an international opera career that forced him to leave a promising future as a songwriter behind. Fifteen years later, after a vocal chord surgery that left him no longer able to meet the demands of opera, Dan returned to writing music, and began performing his own songs.

With six critically acclaimed albums under his belt, including his 2011 release “Dying Breed” making the Philadelphia Inquirer’s list of “Top 10 Albums” of 2011. Dan’s latest release, “Heartland” has already received stellar reviews on both coasts. Headline photo by Lisa Schaffer.
