Band members playing music on stage

Dan Lotti once said, “For me, the whole artistic process is rooted in a sort of spiritual practice. I’m not outwardly yogic, but every single day I’m involved in a yogic practice of meditation and stretching. I think that practice inevitably breathes and inspires the music. It opens you up to a lot of different perspectives.” For Dan and his band Dangermuffin, the music they make is meant for both fun and for healing. Their songs are both for bringing community together, and for letting loose and enjoying a tight jam. Here, those jams are mostly acoustic.

From the desk of WNCW Program Director and Producer of Southern Songs and Stories, Joe Kendrick:

 

The Spring Albino Skunk Festival is open for music, food, camping, and - as they say at the Skunk Farm, "FES - TAA - VUUL"  fun! The dates are April 11th through April 13th.

From a song inspired by a Cherokee creation myth ("Ancient Golden Star"), to the use of chords and frequencies intended to facilitate sound healing within the human body, the three members of Dangermuffin live their vision of giving back to the universe through their art and their day-to-day lifestyles. As a touring regional rock band, they work as hard as anyone we know, crisscrossing the Carolinas and beyond, and they've done a great job putting this wonderful corner of our country on the musical map.
