Dantom is a singer/songwriter and dervish of the Mevlevi Order (Threshold Society) living in Cumbria. On his albums Root of the Root (2022) and Remember (forthcoming), he cooks up music using the following recipe: Take a goodly spoonful of western folk/blues/rock, sprinkle Sufi influences and a dash of the East, and place in the oven of devotion. Bake until the colours of stone and leaf are spied… maybe the flash of a kingfisher. Serve as a dish to celebrate the Divine Presence in nature and the human heart. linktr.ee/dantomdyer
