Dan Berggren

 

Traditional and self-penned songs of the Adirondack region of New York State. Dan Berggren’s roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised but his music has branched out across many borders. The award-winning musician and educator grew up on the land farmed by his mother's family for generations and has worked in the woods with forest ranger and survey crews. Hearing stories and songs from local friends and neighbors, Dan has developed a style that captures the spirit of the mountains.

Dan has entertained audiences throughout New York State, from Vermont to Kentucky and Texas, and overseas in the British Isles, Eastern Europe and Central Africa. Some of his songs have been symphonically arranged, giving Dan the opportunity to perform with orchestras in Fredonia, Ithaca, Syracuse, West Virginia and Indiana.

His original music has been featured nationally on public radio and television, earning praise from near and far. Vermont Public Radio calls Dan's music: "A genuine treasure. Fresh and timeless, full of courage and down to earth richness."
