Dan Treanor – Africa to America

Take a journey with the Blues from Africa to America, from the Delta to the swamp, from Chicago to St. Louis and all points in between. Self proclaimed Blues Ambassador, Dan Treanor is your guide as he leads us through the progression of the blues. This chronological look at the blues is excellent and showcases Teanor's ability to play it all. Songs recorded from 1984-2004, unfortunately no details on the accompanying musicians. I particularly enjoyed the first half of the CD where Treanor takes us through the primitive phases of the blues.
Treanor plays around Denver and Boulder on a regular basis, hosting blues jams, opening for national acts and of course playing his own shows. Treanor is very likely to break out one of his primitive instruments during any show and it’s really great to see a guy that makes the effort to work these instruments into the show.
