Dan Bui is a mandolinist hailing from Austin TX and a recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music. He was initially introduced to music through classical piano and violin lessons but it was his discovery of the mandolin in high school that inspired him to delve deeper into music. He came to the Berklee College of Music to expand his knowledge of traditional styles, improvisation, composition, and overall musicianship. In addition to spending a lot of time in Berklee's recording studios, Dan was fortunate enough to study with master musicians John McGann, Joe Walsh, Darol Anger, and Jason Anick. He has also learned just as much from other young musicians in the fertile Boston acoustic music scene.
For this special evening, Dan will be joined by some very talented Boston-area musicians (many of whom are also performing in the Outpost 186 series). They will be performing an eclectic mix of Dan's original music and tunes from the bluegrass and old-time traditions.
And tune in to "The Bluegrass Lounge" on Berklee student internet radio The BIRN Monday, November 18, 11pm-1am, when the program will host Dan and his friends live in studio!
