Dakota Dave Hull is happy to announce a special concert celebrating the release of his new double CD Under the North Star. Patrick Harison will be doing an opening set and we'll also be honored by a very special guest appearance from Butch Thompson! 

Hailed by everyone from Dave Van Ronk to Doc Watson and the Washington Post, Dakota Dave Hull's guitar style spans a wide musical geography to create an infectious, uniquely personal blend of jazz, ragtime, folk, blues, Western swing and vintage pop. He's a restlessly curious, adventurous traveler along the broad highway of America's music.

Most of all, Dakota Dave's music is great fun. As Douglas Greene (Ranger Doug of Riders in the Sky) puts it, "There is an imp within Dave Hull that always expresses itself on the fretboard; a witty, intelligent yet respectful imp who frolics in his music, an imp Dakota Dave neither fights nor lets take control, but simply absorbs into the heart of his style."

A gifted composer as well as a strikingly original interpreter of older tunes, Hull calls what he does "classic American guitar." Folk legend Van Ronk called him "one of the best guitarists in the world." At the urging of Van Ronk, among others, Dave released his first album of solo fingerstyle guitar tunes in 2002. Since then he's released a pair of other solo albums, duo albums with, respectively, Pop Wagner and Duck Baker, and the brand new double CD "Under the North Star."
