"Gorgeous harmonies, thrilling arrangements, and some remarkably insightful, honest writing. "
- SING OUT! MAGAZINE
"Handcrafted sound centered on swarming harmonies and acoustic guitars that churn like a paddlewheel and shimmer like heat waves on the highway."
- ACOUSTIC GUITAR MAGAZINE
"Just one of the highlights from the outstanding Tangled Country, a collection of often sad but still hopeful songs, 'Same Old' mines some of the territory of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, with lilting banjo, gorgeous harmonies and tasteful pedal steel, and exemplifies this duo's simple yet beautiful music."
— FREDDY JENKINS, FOR NPR MUSIC'S FAVORITE SONGS OF 2015
Dan's coming back, tell your friends!!!

Navarrostarted his career as a songwriter, most
often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the
Grammy-nominated “We Belong”) , The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Keb’
Mo’, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, Dutch superstar
Marco Borsato, The Triplets, Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir and many
In the 1990s, he recorded and toured with Lowen in the acclaimed
acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan
has since transitioned into a growing solo career, increasingly in
demand on the national concert circuit...
He’s moonlighted as a singer and voice actor for 25 years, in major
motion pictures, such as The Book Of Life (as the archvillain “Chakal”),
plus The Lorax, Happy Feet (1 & 2), Rio (on the Oscar-nominated
“Real In Rio”), Ice Age (2 & 3), and a dozen more; TV series
Turbo Fast, Prison Break, Family Guy and American Dad; recordings with
Neil Young, Andrea Bocelli, Luis Miguel, Jose Feliciano, Susanna Hoffs
and Jon Anderson of Yes; and commercials for Subaru, Shakey’s Pizza,
McDonald’s, Toyota, Coca-Cola, Honda, El Pollo Loco, Nationwide and
hundreds of others...
will be Eric's tenth show at FolkHouse since 2003. In that time he has
proven to be one of a kind and a great friend. Eric is family. Big

Eric Taylor is a force of nature, a brilliant writer, sage observer of humanity, mesmerizing performer and one of my favorite people. This will mark Eric's ninth FolkHouse appearance and we are honored to have him back.
Part music concert, part spoken word, an Eric Taylor concert might best be described as an unblinking theatrical human experience. Performance art at its best. I can't recommend this show enough...
"To say that Eric Taylor is one of the finest writers of our time, would be an understatement," Nanci Griffith says. "If you miss an opportunity to hear Eric Taylor, you have missed a chance to hear a voice I consider the William Faulkner of songwriting in our current time." Griffith has recorded several of Taylor's songs, including "Deadwood," "Storms," "Dollar Matinee" and "Ghost in the Music," which they wrote together. Lyle Lovett, who has recorded Taylor's "Memphis Midnight/Memphis Morning," “Whooping Crane,” “Understand You,” and with whom Taylor co-wrote the immensely popular "Fat Babies," compares Taylor's narrative voice to that of Bruce Springsteen. Iain Matthews claims, "Once you become a Taylor fanatic, it gives one immense joy and pride to be able to enlighten others to the man's work."
So unique, and so fantastic! THEROUGH

& Tumbleare two scarecrows in a cornfield,
two pairs of hands stealing the same piece of candy, a dust devil that
traveled seven states to get to you only to make you cry. They are the
only surviving memory of the first bike accident in the history of bikes
and the skinned knees and the broken hearts. They love eating fish but
always feel bad about it when they put them in the pan, especially when
the eyes are still intact. They wake up every morning and work on that
crossword puzzle written in a forgotten language that only gets harder
the more you forget. The Rough & Tumble are here to lock eyes with
you in a crowded room, smile and wink at you. The Rough & Tumble is
Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler.
