We’re thrilled to feature Dylan Doyle, an almost-twenty-year-old guitar playing wizard from the Catskills for the third time at SpillianFest. He’s emerging as a musical force and headed to the big time…
Southern born and Northern bred, nineteen year old Guitar Slinger Dylan Doyle embodies the best of both old and new music worlds. Steeped in the authentic sounds of blues and Americana — with influences as broad as the Mississippi river, from Robert Johnson to John Lee Hooker, from Buddy Guy to Bob Dylan, The Band, Bill Withers and Jimi Hendrix, Dylan’s unique musical interpretation lies somewhere in the intersection of delta Blues, Rock with just a taste of Funk that is uniquely his own.
Touring since age 15, Dylan has performed at the Grateful Garcia Gathering, at the King Biscuit Blues Festival for the last 4 years, and debuted in European tour in 2017. In short, Dylan has been preparing all his life to take the stage for his first live CD, and plant his flag where legendary artists have tread before.
“There truly must be something in the water in Upstate New York. Dylan joined the group Minstrel (Connor Kennedy, Lee Falco, Will Bryant, and Brandon Moss) and me last September at The Falcon in Marlboro, NY. He sat in on Little Feat’s “Dixie Chicken” that evening. His playing was flawless and inventive. Live performance is not about only playing a song but being aware of the conversation and flow of those you’re playing with. He spoke beautifully and was listening to what was going on around him.” — Bill Payne, Little Feat
