This January, Emmy-winning actor [The Newsroom] and bluegrass musician Jeff Daniels goes on tour in support of his new album Days Like These. He’s touring with the Ben Daniels Band. The tour opens in Philadelphia on January 7, 2015 and wraps up in Cleveland on January 31, 2015. He’ll be performing in the Boston-area at Natick Center for the Arts on January 13, 2015.
Daniels said: “In getting ready to go out this past summer with Ben’s band, I didn’t want to do the standard “Opener-Headliner” deal. Instead, I wanted to take what I do on my own, blend it in with what Ben’s band does and come out with a new show. I love writing songs, I love entertaining people, and I love putting on a show. Happy to say, the show just got better.”
Jeff Daniels started his second career as a musician to raise funds for The Purple Rose Theatre (a not-for-profit professional company he founded in his hometown of Chelsea, Mich.). Subsequently he recorded six albums and toured the U.S. several times.
