With Dan Doiron at the Edmundston Jazz & Blues Festival

Place Hotel de Ville, Edmunston, New Brunswick

Dan Doiron has been addicted to the guitar ever since he picked it up and formed his first band at age 13 in Port Hood, Cape Breton. In fact some people say they don't recognize him without a guitar strapped on. His unique, energetic sound reflects his diverse background in rock, blues and classical guitar.

For over 20 years he has been involved in the music industry in Atlantic Canada as a musician, music educator,(B.MUS.Ed  from Dalhousie University with a major in classical guitar), guitar clinician and recording engineer.

In April 2011 Dan Doiron's debut album, "Even My Guitar is in Love With You" introduced his first solo project, and the album was nominated for both a Nova Scotia Music Award and East Coast Music Award for 2012 Blues album of the Year.

“My passion has always been to express myself through the guitar and throughout the years, it’s made me who I am. On my first album, “Holdin’ on by my Six String” and “Even My Guitar is in Love With You”, reflect the role of music, and in particular the guitar, in my life.”
