Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir and many more...
Throughout the 1990s, Dan 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, touring nearly 100 dates per year...
