Who is Danny Gatton?

Danny Gatton, “The World’s Greatest Unknown Guitarist,” combined jazz, rock, country, blues, and rockabilly into dazzling mélanges of sound. A conflicted, paradoxical genius, Danny was a humble man, yet his virtuosity humbled musicians far more famous than he.

The Humbler: Danny Gatton is a music history documentary, a biography and a love story to American Roots music.

In the movie, all the music is by Danny Gatton and it is interwoven with candid interviews as we chronicle his life from 1964 to when we lost him in 1994.

Danny is revered among his colleagues, the documentary includes commentary with: Les Paul, Vince Gill, Joe Bonamassa, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Albert Lee, and many more.

We have the full support of Danny’s widow and daughter, which has given us unique access to largely unseen material.

Danny’s career never went mainstream; he remained a guitarist’s guitarist yet his fame keeps growing due to his presence on You Tube.

The story is that Danny Gatton is one of the greatest guitar players ever to pick up a guitar and that people should know about him. That is the whole story.
