Jeff Daniels performing at virtual concert Aug. 28

Join Emmy award-winning and Tony® nominated actor, director, singer/song-writer Jeff Daniels for an intimate concert experience full of original songs, personal stories from his stage and movie career that only he can tell — and plenty of smiles. Following the concert, Daniels will do a short Q & A.

This event will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 28.

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 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, 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.”
