"a phenomenal experience!"


Award-winning singer, guitarist, songwriter and historian Dan McKinnon hails from the Canadian Maritimes, an area rich in the musical and cultural traditions of the North Atlantic. In addition to his many solo performances and recordings, Dan has performed with Symphony Nova Scotia and toured Atlantic Canada and Ireland as part of an International Theatre Festival show about the life and times of Stan Rogers. Dan has also recorded and performed with the pub groups McGinty, and Evans and Doherty.

Dan's thoughtful compositions and smooth melodies cover the entire folk spectrum, with themes traditional, historical, contemporary and universal. His warm baritone voice, original compositions and superb guitar arrangements have won this native Nova Scotian widespread praise from critics, club owners, festival organizers and fans. Most recently, on the 9th November, he wowed the audience at Hornsby Folk Club. See review here.

"It was a phenomenal experience .... the audience really let rip .... All in all a wonderful night, Dan's rich voice and warm personality made this an evening to remember for a long time." - Patricia Early

"Hearing Dan McKinnon for the first time reminds me of the first time I heard Stan Rogers or James Keelaghan.” - Rich Warren, Sing out Magazine

“GO AND SEE HIM! I personally guarantee the quality and defy anyone not to enjoy an evening listening to Dan McKinnon!” - Mudcat Cafe
