Q. How can I rustle up some fine fireside entertainment?
A. Sit around a fire with Dan Dyer on guitar.
The East Texas-born musician is a regular at the Continental Club in Austin. This weekend, he’s hanging out with Chef Lou and his crew, lending a hand to pitch in or poach some eggs. When I asked him how he describes his style, he called it “a combination of country, folk and soul.” And that’s just what we got on our last night out in West Texas. In his cowboy hat, overalls and boots, this Texas troubadour had everyone’s full attention as he strummed through half a dozen original songs. I’ll take a concert sponsored by that voice any day of the week.
