Daniel and the Lion come to Birdy’s after a summer long tour supporting Counting Crows on dates nationwide. Yet another band you’ll be saying “I saw them at Birdy’s back in the day” Old Salt Union is playing music by its own set of rules. While the men of this group are no complete rebels — citing bluegrass influences from The Del McCoury Band to Sam Bush — they are also certainly thinking ahead, drawing inspiration from Bill Evans, Danny Elfman, Punch Brothers, and more. The band stretches the boundaries of traditional bluegrass music by incorporating in-depth musical arrangements, catchy hooks and pop sensibilities.
