Intriguing instruments - stunning music. Dan Schwartz is a Minneapolis musician who makes soulful music on the harp guitar, lap steel and acoustic guitar.

Dan has written and released nine CDs and has been featured on several internationally released acoustic guitar compilations including Narada Records Masters of Acoustic Guitar. His recordings have earned him a nomination for guitarists of the year (Minnesota Music Academy) and local Folk/roots album of the year (Mpls. St Paul Magazine).
