Daniel Boling

Winner of the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest, the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, and others, Daniel shares experiences from a life well-lived in three countries and seven States. After a career including a stint as a National Park Ranger, he started touring full time at age 50 as a balladeer/songwriter bringing his well-crafted story songs to happy audiences throughout the U.S. and in Europe in over one hundred shows a year, from House Concerts and listening rooms to major festivals. He plays guitar and banjo with a deft fingerpicking style that always enhances the stories, and a bit of harmonica into the bargain. Daniel is also a current member of the iconic 1960s folk trio The Limeliters, who frequently tour with the Brothers Four and The Kingston Trio. Whether you’ve walked the very same roads, you can’t help but relate to these songs – and no matter what your story is, you’ll love Daniel’s.
