DAVE RYAN, Mandolin

Multi-instrumentalist Dave Ryan is almost a native Californian, born in Wilmington, Delaware.

Dave spent the first 10 years of his life living in the mid-west and the south before coming to Monrovia, CA. He took up the mandolin just out of high school and hasn’t put it down yet. His wife says it seems surgically attached. Dave has played and toured with a number of folk and bluegrass bands including Sunland, Rainwater Bluegrass, Hooverville Rounders and the Dust Bowl Revival before joining The Storytellers in late 2018. He also plays Irish and Celtic music on guitar, Irish bouzouki and octave mandolin.
