My name is Danny Garwood, I’ve been playing guitar for 5 years, and it is my passion. I take inspiration from such artists as Kenny Wayne Shepard, Eric Gales, Stevie Ray Vaughan and countless others in the guitar world/community. I live in Nashville TN and my mission is to keep the blues alive and pass it on to the next generation of musicians.
I went to my first jam when I was 10 and they allowed me to play. I was hooked, I loved it and wanted to learn and do more. Started playing more jams and began playing live shows when I was 11. If interested you can read my full music journey to date as I was featured in the Blues Society of the Ozarks newsletter July, 2022.

I competed in the 2022 Dallas International Guitar Festival '10 under 20' competition for the first time. Ally Venable pulled me up on stage during one of her shows that weekend, and our video on YouTube has had over 4 million views, and counting! Through that video I was asked to open for Ally in a show in Houston, TX. I just recently competed in the 2023 '10 under 20' competition and was awarded 3rd place, and was also the youngest in the competition!
I had the honor of sharing the stage with Buddy Guy and Christone "Kingfish' Ingram at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville during Buddy's Farewell Tour.
I'm also a Masterclass alum of the Pinetop Perkins Foundation workshops that are overseen by Muddy Waters' guitarist, Bob Margolin.
My love and passion is the blues, but I play everything from Alan Jackson to Metallica and put my all into everything I play. I've been told that I play with more passion and feeling than most adults.
I've formed a band called Danny Garwood & Co, and we are available for bookings. I'm also available for solo acoustic shows. Use the BOOKING link below for booking information and anything else related to Danny Garwood....
