Darryl Purpose


Since 1996 Darryl has done over 1500 shows, (McCabes in Santa Monica, Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, The Kerrvile Folk Festival, Club Passim in Boston, Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, Blue Rock in Texas, Kennedy Center, Washington DC, Quantum Arts, Ft. Collins, Colorado and more) Slowing down when he moved to Colorado in 2004 and found a home (and some mountains to hike in). Recent years he has toured a bit to support Next Time Around, (the 2013 release that spent 5 weeks at #1 on the Roots Music Report folk charts) and Still The Birds (Early 2016 release that also spent time at #1)
