Dan started playing guitar as a teenager in the previous century, digging into rock and the blues. A visit to a Muse Jam in 2010 rejuvenated his interest in performing. He wants to keep the Muse Jam alive and continue the spirit of openness to music, poetry and whatever else people are interested in sharing. He has worked at The Virginian-Pilot for 23 years as an editor for the business section, features section and copy desk, and currently is in charge of the paper's arts and entertainment coverage.
