Dan Lowery is originally from Dallas, Texas and has been playing Irish music for over twenty years. After learning on the tinwhistle at a young age, he began playing the wooden flute and became heavily involved in the Dallas Irish music scene, joining local bands Idle Road, the Lone Star Ceili Band and the
TIMES Band & Session Players. He soon went on to play and compete around Ireland and the U.S., leading him to win first place at the 2001 Midwest Fleadh Cheoil. A subsequent tour with Surreel, a band of up-and-coming American Irish musicians, prompted him to move to New York City in 2002, where he played professionally for over a decade. After numerous stints playing in house bands at famed Irish music bars John D. McGurk’s and Raglan Road, he now plays and tours regularly with the Colin Farrell Band, the Bronx Boys and Pappy with a Hatchet.
