Biography

Fingerstyle blues guitarist Dan Livingstone has been receiving acclaim from musicians and audiences alike as an exceptional guitar player and an engaging performer - a bluesman to watch. Whether playing rags, swing, blues or spirituals, his expressive style marks him as a musician with “big ears” and a passion for the authentic. Born and raised on the west coast of Canada, Livingstone now makes his home in Montreal where he regularly plays the clubs around that city. In the Fall of 2004, he toured Europe, playing the clubs and concert halls of Norway, Germany and France. His appearances and concerts across Canada over the last decade have included festivals in the Maritimes, Prairies and Quebec, mainstaging at both Rimouski en Blues and Carleton International Blues Festival, the Pan Am Games, International Jazz Festival of Montreal, and the Islands Folk Festival on Vancouver Island where audiences ranked him as one of the top performers of the weekend. In 2008, he embarked upon a tour that took him to China, Ireland, France, Belgium with brief stopovers in Greece, N. Ireland and the USA. With nearly 700 shows in the past five years Livingstone has established himself as a veteran performer and raconteur.

Livingstone is inspired by the magic of the Piedmont, Delta and Texas blues traditions, and one of his aims as a musician is to immerse his audience in the music of Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, Fred McDowell, and Robert Johnson. Livingstone’s originals— very popular with his fans — reflect a mix of these influences as well as a highly developed, lyrical style.

    Je l'ai vu live à l'auberge jeunesse de Tadoussac (Qc) récemment. Tout un guitariste ! C'est quelque chose de le voir se crisper le visage en jouant. J'ai tellement embarqué que j'y ai acheté son CD à la fin.
