September 6, 2014 Dan joins Mickelson on The Turtle Restaurant Patio
In 2013, San Francisco artist/producer Scott Mickelson celebrated the release of more than five full-length records with his band FAT OPIE. He continues to paint both musical and lyrical portraits of contemporary life as an American. Known for eclectic arrangements and far-reaching production, he produces music with a finger on the pulse of the fragmented culture here in the U.S. This is most evident on the latest release Victoryville hailed as his most important work. “Scott Mickelson will shatter your idea of what an ‘American banjo guy” is supposed to sound like. His voice draws comparisons to Eddie Vedder, his banjo work to Keith Richards, and his songs tell deep, timeless stories.”
