Folk Dope is an album by Dolbro Dan. Eleven lyric-driven original songs high-lighting Dan’s love of old time roots with a raucous, modern twist.
Alternative Folk, Acoustic Blues, Alt Country, Rock’n’Roll, Americana – whatever helps to deliver the story. A big fan of early Bob Dylan, Dan took a leaf from his book when he first started out on acoustic guitar and harmonica.
Dolbro Dan is never one to mince words, putting heart and soul into every vocal performance, attacking the recordings with a host of guest musicians to produce some very poignant moments on the album.
Dan continues to favour his trusty acoustic guitar from the Newtownards based guitar manufacturers, Avalon. He uses Lee Oskar harmonicas.
Folk Dope was recorded with support from friends and fans through a crowdfunding campaign and released by US indie vinyl label, Feedbands. Based on an organic farm in North Carolina, Feedbands are a highly ethical, musician-friendly independent label who issue first editions of unsigned, DIY artists. Aside from that they also plant trees to offset carbon emissions, offer food and shelter to touring bands, and reward listeners with bitcoin for using their streaming service!
