Jeff Daniels is primarily known as a powerhouse actor of film, TV and stage with a career that has spanned more than 40 years and multiple Emmy wins and Tony and Golden Globe nominations.

However, his talents are not just limited to fending off killer spiders in “Arachnophobia”; listening to the most annoying sound in the world in “Dumb and Dumber”; or playing outlaw in his Emmy-winning turn in “Godless.”

Daniels has consistently performed in concert since 2000, sharing the stage with Bruce Hornsby, Keb Mo’, Lyle Lovett, and toured both coasts with his son’s band, The Ben Daniels Band. His passion for writing brought him to songwriting.

“In 1976, I moved to New York City to become an actor. What I didn’t plan on was being so influenced by so many Off-Broadway playwrights, in particular, Lanford Wilson, who would later go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for his ‘Talley’s Folly.” Lanford taught me so much about the writing process, imagery, the love/hate relationship one has with such a solitary pursuit and the endless rewriting as you search for a better way to say it. In Hollywood, the joke is if you ask any actor what he really wants to do, he’ll say, ‘Direct.’ Not me. I wanted to write. So I did. With a guitar in my hands.”

The Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded in 1991 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization to preserve the historic Sheridan Opera House as an arts and cultural resource for the Telluride community, to bring quality arts and cultural events to Telluride and to provide local and national youth with access and exposure to the arts through education. The Sheridan Arts Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the CCAASE and Colorado Creative Industries.
