“The Blues run deep in the veins of Dan “Lawman” Lawson. Strap his “1956 Stratocaster” on him and Lawson deftly opens those veins, letting his brand of high-energy boogie flow out with a fire and passion that would make “Clapton” proud. ( Dave Pratt of the Barnstable Patriot.
DAN LAWSON does not just play a guitar, His guitar tells a story of Passion and Soul. Dan picked up the guitar at age four and has not put it down. He has since toured around the world to the delight of thousands of fans. He has toured the United States and Canada.
