Christmas comes early for Chattanooga
musician Dan Landrum

Local artist "discovered" while performing on
Aquarium Plaza - will tour with Yanni in 2003


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Nov. 22) - Many Chattanooga residents and visitors enjoy the beautiful music of Dan Landrum but in early 2003 he will take the sound of the hammered dulcimer to audiences world wide.

It was a summer afternoon and Landrum was entertaining the crowds in front of the Tennessee Aquarium. A young man in the crowd listened to his music, asked several interesting questions, then bought a CD. Landrum said he didn't think much about this until the man returned.

"He said he wanted to buy a second CD so he could send it to his boss, Yanni, to hear," Landrum said. "I thought, 'sure.'"

Landrum's skepticism vanished when he received a call in July from Anthony Stevil, Yanni's production manager. Stevil asked Landrum if he would be interested in auditioning for the chance to participate in Yanni's 2003 world tour.

Landrum made a trip to Palm Beach, Fla., for the audition and was quickly singed to the world tour that begins March 2003. Although tour dates and cities have not been announced, Landrum said excitement is building for this event.

Come congratulate Landrum and enjoy his music on Dec. 7 and 8, in the Tennessee Aquarium auditorium. Concerts are scheduled for 11:30 a.m., 1, 3 and 4:30 p.m. The concerts are free with Aquarium admission. Landrum will perform holiday favorites and selections from his new CD, "Face the Strings."
