Welcome

Thank you for stopping by!   I'm an "old school singer/songwriter" bringing a gentle Christian message of hope.  Armed with an acoustic guitar, I create music that celebrates what God is doing in us, for us and through us.  

UK TOUR RE-SCHEDULED

I would like to thank all of my friends in the UK for being so patient and willing to work through all of the changes for my 4th UK tour.  We started planning this trip before the pandemic hit.  Believing it would surely be over in 6 months, we postponed the trip.  And when it wasn't, we were a bit more tentative about scheduling, but hoped to travel in October/November of 2021.  After many emails, we have decided to aim for after Easter in 2022.  While we are aware that this could change again, we are praying for an end to the pandemic and a safe return to our churches and our lives.  Schedules and tour dates will be released when we are sure to go!! 

 

 

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!

I would like to thank all my friends and all the churches who kept me busy during the pandemic.  It was great to be with you virtually, but honestly, if I never do another Facebook Live, video or live stream again, that will be ok with me.  I miss seeing your faces, and I miss being able to talk with you.  But I think we've made it through to the other side!!  My calendar is quite full and I'm really looking forward to actually being WITH you again.

A NEW CHRISTMAS CD!!!  GLORY, GLORIA!!!!

    Dan Holmes… Great concert tonight, love the new CD, I also love some of the new songs you did tonight. I really enjoy the sing-along portion. You sounded great tonight, your instruments sounded great, And what’s even more impressive is that you write and compose all the music. “Shine On” on my friend !

    I truly loved having you lead worship Oct 29th. Your songs are filled with thought, spirituality & at times hardy laughter. They incorporate all the things I personally believe He wants us to experience daily. Many thanks.

    I would like to thank you for coming and testifying and sharing your music with us. I enjoyed the time. I wasn't sure at first what I was going to Think. But it was good. I felt like some of your testimony was in some way similar to something that I have been going through Anyway thanks again. Martin Johnson
