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.

Darryl is in creative mode, thinking about a new record, and the annual Camp Ned songwriter retreat in the Rocky Mountains.

He is available in 2017 for a few special shows. He would like to get to the west coast, New England, Texas and perhaps the Midwest. Festivals, theater’s coffee houses, and select house concerts. If you’d like to host Darryl, please get in touch.
