BEMIDJI — Headwaters Music and Arts will welcome nationally touring musician and songwriter Dan Navarro to Bemidji for a concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3, followed by a guitar workshop for ages 13-adult from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 4. at Headwaters, 519 Minnesota Ave. NW.

Navarro’s long and eclectic resume includes songwriter, recording artist, singer, voice actor and arts advocate, a release said.

He started his career writing songs for a diverse array of artists including Pat Benatar (for the Grammy-nominated “We Belong”) The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, The Triplets, Dutch star Marco Borsato and Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir, the release said.

In the 1990s and 2000s, Navarro worked with Eric Lowen as they recorded and toured as the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen and Navarro until Lowen's retirement in 2009. Navarro has transitioned into a busy solo career over the past decade, touring nationally almost constantly.

Navarro's long-awaited first true studio-recorded album, "Shed My Skin" was released in 2019. He has a parallel career as a voice actor and singer, in films like "The Playmobil Movie," "Pirates of the Caribbean: Deadmen Tell No Tales," "The Book of Life," "Rio," "Happy Feet," "The Lorax," and Ice Age's 2 and 3. Along with TV series "Turbo Fast," "Prison Break, "Family Guy" and "American Dad," the release said.

Most recently, Navarro sang on six Lin-Manuel Miranda songs in the Disney Film "Encanto" and, in February, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart.

Now, Navarro’s new album, "Horizon Line,” is set for an August release. Pre-orders are available for purchase at dannavarro.com.

Concert tickets are $25 per person and the cost to register for the guitar workshop is $50. For more information and to register, visit headwatersmusicandarts.org.
