Growing up in the 1960’s, Danny Gotham got the idea to play guitar when the Beatles were televised into his living room on the “Ed Sullivan Show”. Since that time, Gotham has developed into a master flatpicking and fingerpicking instrumentalist. Gotham cut his musical teeth playing in various rock, blues, bluegrass and country bands. In 1980, Gotham took Second Place in the prestigious National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS. Since then he has opened for many major acts, including Arlo Guthrie, Doc Watson, David Bromberg, Leo Kottke and John Fahey. He also performed as accompanist for Tom Paxton, Peter Ostroushko, and Maura O'Connell. Gotham has performed on the nationally syndicated radio broadcast Michael Feldman’s “Whad’ya Know ?”. He composed the soundtrack of the PBS documentary “Hungers of the Soul”. And in one of his more unusual gigs, Gotham was the ukulele tutor for Tom Selleck as the actor prepared for the Broadway production of “A Thousand Clowns”. In addition to working as a solo artist, Gotham performs with the North Carolina–based groups Triple Fret and The Nashvilifiers, as well as occasional reunion gigs with the Racquette River Rounders and Barb Heller. Gotham has recorded a dozen albums, both solo and with others, that cover the gamut from folk to blues to country to jazz----with everything else in between.
