Friday, December 30th –  Den Hanrahan with Gleny Rae Virus & Her Playboys –  Den Hanrahan was born kicking and screaming and he’s not about to change. Likened to artists such as Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt and Gillian Welch, Den’s music is his version of bluegrass and contemporary up-tempo acoustic/electric music. Born of one-night stands and roadhouses He’s not afraid to take his audience along for the ride. With his gutsy vocals, lively guitar playing and raw, stripped back style, His gigs are bold and upbeat, yet he maintains an intimacy with the audience as he weaves his way through tales of the lonely life on the road and the characters he has met traveling on it.
