Jeff Daniels is probably best known to audiences as a film, television, and stage actor, from his Emmy-winning roles in Netflix’s Godless and the HBO series The Newsroom to the popular film series Dumb and Dumber. He also received a Tony® nominee for his recent year-long role on Broadway as Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird. Most don’t realize Daniel’s is also talented playwright, musician, lyricist, and storyteller, with nearly four hundred songs, three hundred live gigs and engagements, and five albums to his name. His songwriting continually draws favorable comparison to Arlo Guthrie, and the late John Prine and Steve Goodman.

“We are thrilled to present this virtual concert with Jeff Daniels,” says Wharton Center Executive Director Mike Brand. “The last time we presented Jeff, back in November of 2017, demand was so great we added another show. He is a wonderful musician and great story-teller.”

Daniels has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Joe Ely, Cheryl Wheeler, Guy Clark, Christine Lavin, Keb Mo’ and Bruce Hornsby. He performed at David Bromberg’s 70th Birthday Bash at NYC’s Town Hall. In 2012, the Martin Guitar Company began selling the OM Jeff Daniels Custom Artist Edition Guitar. He also narrated their award-winning documentary, The Ballad Of The Dreadnought.
