IPR Studio One Underground with Dan Tedesco
Join us for IPR Studio One Underground — Iowa Public Radio’s monthly live series featuring Iowa and touring artists, broadcasted live from The Basement. Attend the show or tune in to listen live.
Dan Tedesco is the quintessential modern-day troubadour, narrating the American experience in song honestly and intimately, and with a big sound to boot. A solo artist, Tedesco’s stage show is framed by a minimalist production that finds him belting out folk-spiced rockers from behind both acoustic and electric guitars while foot-stomping percussion rounds out many of the arrangements—this is one solo artist who won’t seem out of place on a bill with rock bands. Interludes at the piano lighten the mood a little, but only a little, as the distorted Rhodes and Wurly sounds only contribute to Dan’s stage presence.
