Live at the Sapphire Songwriters Forum


Meet Your Host Dan Costello:

Your host with the most! Dan is a singer/songwriter, guitarist and prime staple of the remote but robust music scene in Boise, Idaho, USA. Armed at an early age with a radio and a baritone ukulele, his love for music led him to a classical guitar degree from Boise State, and a full-time professional music career now spanning over fifteen years as a performer, writer/arranger, educator and simultaneous rabble-rouser/peacemaker in his local community.

What to Expect at the Forum:

Hear original music by many different songwriters! Songwriters bring original songs and sing to an appreciative, listening audience. One writer – one song.  Lots of fun for performers and for the audience. The event is free, all ages welcome, and listening encouraged.
