Dan Dubuque

A solo acoustic guitarist, Dan Dubuque is known for his unique approach to the Weissenborn, a slide guitar that’s played lap-style. Dubuque often adds percussive effects, playing the guitar like a drum while infusing every song with his free-sounding style. He picked up the Weissenborn after seeing singer-songwriter Ben Harper play one onstage. However, even though the instrument is used frequently in Americana and folk music, Dubuque is more of a rock guy. He frequently includes covers of harder rocking bands like Tool and Rage Against the Machine in his sets, along with his own original tunes. Being a solo performer has its ups and downs, but Dubuque says he wouldn’t have it any other way. “I was born to do this,” he said in an interview with the Missoulian. “You can’t run from who you are.”
