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). He has a new solo CD in the works – a collection of finger-style guitar tunes played on harp guitar and acoustic lap steel, to be released in early 2018.

Dan was amazing. We asked for some special songs and I could not have been happier with his performance. It was so great. Definitely would reach out to him again! He kept touching base to make sure he knew what the plan was and exactly what he wanted and gave us several ways to contact him, which eased my mind. Very happy with our decision to hire him for our wedding ceremony!
