Dan Weber (XII)

Dan Weber at the Crystal Theatre — Woody Guthrie Folk Festival

Songwriter Takes 3rd Prize

Singer-​Songwriter takes 3rd Prize in Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest

I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good sto­ries.

It just keeps get­ting bet­ter for Dan Weber. In 2010, he won was nom­i­nated for the pres­ti­gious Dave Carter Songwriting Contest. Two years later, he was a final­ist in the Kerrville Folk Festival “New Folk” com­pe­ti­tion. This year, he won Third Prize in the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest, earn­ing him a spot on the Crystal Theatre stage in Okemah, home to the annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.

His new CD Ash and Bone has gar­nered pos­i­tive acclaim from American Songwriter Magazine and drawn the atten­tion of the Great American Songwriting Contest and the Great Lakes Songwriting Contest. He’s even bet­ter per­form­ing live, exud­ing a gen­uine “aw shucks” air. You can tell he’s glad to be wher­ever he is, any­time — just ask the folks at the camp­ground, whom he ser­e­naded when he dropped by their camp­fire song-​circles over the course of the fes­ti­val. Be sure to ask him for a What would Hank and Jesus Do? bumper sticker the next time you see him.
