Dan Bui is a mandolinist hailing from Austin TX and a recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music. He was initially introduced to music through classical piano and violin lessons but it was his discovery of the mandolin in high school that inspired him to delve deeper into music. He came to the Berklee College of Music to expand his knowledge of traditional styles, improvisation, composition, and overall musicianship. In addition to spending a lot of time in Berklee’s recording studios, Dan was fortunate enough to study with master musicians John McGann, Joe Walsh, Darol Anger, and Jason Anick. He has also learned just as much from other young musicians in the fertile Boston acoustic music scene.
For this special evening, Dan will be joined by some very talented Boston-area musicians (many of whom are also performing in the Outpost 186 series). They will be performing an eclectic mix of Dan’s original music and tunes from the bluegrass and old-time traditions.

This Fall, Lord Geoffrey is presenting a “rising talent” (with the emphasis on Celtic / string band / old time music / contemporary variants) mid-week music series, featuring student artists from the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory.
Outpost 186 in Inman Square, Cambridge is the venue where Rushad Eggleston, John Mailander and Molly Tuttle launched the series in the Spring. It seats about 35, thus is small enough so no sound reinforcement is needed but big enough to accommodate discriminating patrons.
Remaining series concerts:

Lord Geoffrey is a scurrilous card-carrying member of the Boston-area folk scene whose mission in life is to re-kindle the great folk scare by presenting in unique rented spaces (galleries, historic homes, church sanctuaries, clubs…) vintage musicians of that era as well as up and coming young whippersnappers!
