Previewed: Dan Mangan at YES Manchester

Gigs in Manchester - Dan Mangan headlines at YES Manchester

Canadian musician Dan Mangan is set to headline at YES Manchester in the midst of a run of UK tour dates in April.

The dates follow the release of his new album More or Less via City Slang and the release of his videos for Peaks & Valleys, Lay Low and Cold In The Summer amongst others from the album.



More Or Less is an album that Mangan claims “feels more like ‘me’ than ever. More sparse. Less meticulous. More kids. Less time. More direct. Less metaphor. More discovery. Less youth. More warmth. Less chaos.” It sees him telling of having a family and the changes and challenges that has brought to his life with touching honesty and warmth.

Meanwhile lead single Peaks & Valleys serves as a reminder to hold on to the ones we love through life’s ups and downs.

Dan Mangan’s reputation is built not just on his husky voice, but on his memorable live shows and ability to connect with his audiences.
