Jeff Daniels, the actor? Yes, the same, but in addition to starring in many household name films (The Squid and The Whale, Dumb and Dumber, Speed, Arachnaphobia, State of Play), he has been quietly and steadily building a catalogue of original songs that would make Woody Guthrie proud. And the guy CAN PLAY. He's currently in the midst of a three month solo tour hitting some of the finest opera houses in the country and smaller, more intimate rooms like The Barns.
I was lucky enough to be able to capture a window of his time in advance of his two night residency at The Barns at Wolf Trap on Thursday, October 14 and Friday, October 15. He was a great interview, and made sure to be very deliberate and comprehensive with his answers to my 10-12 questions. The biggest take away? If you attend his performances(s), aside from proving he's NOT just another actor turned musician, his ultimate goal is to make you laugh harder than you have in a long time.
