Hailed by everyone from Dave Van Ronk to Doc Watson, from the Washington Post to Downbeat, Dakota Dave Hull's guitar style spans an infectious, uniquely personal blend of jazz, ragtime, folk, blues, Western swing, and vintage pop. A gifted composer as well as a tender and thoughtful interpreter of older tunes, Dakota Dave calls what he does "classic American guitar." Folk legend Van Ronk called Dave "one of the best guitarists in the world."
Most of all, Dakota Dave's music is great fun. As Douglas Greene (Ranger Doug of Riders in the Sky) puts it, "There is an imp within Dave Hull that always expresses itself on the fretboard; a witty, intelligent, yet respectful imp who frolics in his music, an imp Dakota Dave neither ghts nor lets take control, but simply absorbs into the heart of his style."
"A masterful flat-picker and increasingly out-of-the-closet fingerstyle player, Hull is not only a magician on the strings, his distinctive arrangements of the vintage material he loves manage to be wry, spry, maybe even fly. Most importantly, his interpretations always find a fresh angle on well-traveled material." - Rick Mason, City Pages, Minneapolis
