Synergy Concerts:
Withered Hand


Fri 18 April 2014

Withered Hand is the music of Dan Willson. Dan came late to singing and songwriting. He found his voice at age 30, in a period of reflection somewhere between the death of a close friend and the birth of his first child.

The moniker Withered Hand encompasses Dan’s activity as a songwriter, a solo performer and WH also exists in a band form. He has toured widely in the last 5 years to acclaim both nationally and in mainland Europe, playing his first shows in the USA in 2012. Withered Hand has recorded several BBC radio sessions and played various festivals from muddy ones like Green Man Festival to less muddy ones like Celtic Connections.

Alongside James Yorkston and Rod Jones (Idlewild), Dan has also been a mentor to a young musician as part of an initiative by mental health charity The Fruit Tree Foundation. He was also a key part of Cora Bissett’s award-winning theatre and music collaboration at Arches Theatre called Whatever Gets You Through The Night, working alongside a stellar cast of Scottish based musicians.
