.Dan Bliss is a performer with a well traveled repertoire of traditional blues, folk and swing tunes. His songwriting is showcased along with his trademark fingerstyle guitar work and vocals on the latest CD “That’s What I’m Here For”. Bliss plays about 200 shows a year in Kansas City and around the Midwest and has opened for artists such as Steve James, Marcia Ball, Honeyboy Edwards, Henry Townsend, Johnnie Johnson, The Nace Brothers, The Waybacks and John McCutcheon. He has twice made the top three (2005 & 2007) in the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield KS and has appeared three times at the New York State Blues Festival in his hometown of Syracuse NY. Bliss has made his home for over 20 years in Kansas City, inspired by the traditions of blues and jazz and the incredible wealth of local talent. While his focus is solo acoustic performance, he has also played with Kelley Hunt and his own band Bluetonium. These days in addition to solo shows he also plays regular duo gigs with legendary KC guitarist Rod Fleeman.
