The Reverend Dan Smith has died last November

BLUES HARMONICA player, singer and street evangelist Rev Dan Smith died in November. Best known to CCM enthusiasts for his duet with Julie Miller on the latter's 'He Walks Through Walls' album and to blues aficionados for his album on Biograph 'God Is Not Dead'. Rev Dan after many years living the life of an itinerant street musician and evangelist, was latterly managed by Tochi Seeger (wife of folk legend Pete Seeger) and in 1992 recorded a critically acclaimed gospel blues album 'Just Keep Going On' for Glasshouse. Michael Hakarson-Stacy's Time And Strike label has assembled an album of live Dan Smith recordings 'Live At Fox Hollow: 1969-1980'.
