Del Ward is a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter hailing from Greensboro, N.C. He has been playing music, or at least trying to, ever since he can remember. He has been a dance accompanist at ADF since 2015 working closely with Andy Hasenpflug each year, and is extremely excited to be returning for another year. Del has been employed at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Dance since 2014, and has been teaching Music for Dance workshops around North Carolina at the university and high school level. Besides playing for dance, Del has also been in a multitude of bands whose genres range from Funk to Hard Indie Rock; sometimes fronting them as the lead vocalist and other times as the lead guitarist or bassist. Del has his own solo career and is planning on releasing an EP this year and going on an East Coast tour this summer. Though specializing in guitar looping, Del has composed multiple original pieces for choreographers for years; all self-recorded and produced playing Guitar, Bass, Piano, Synth, Vocals, and Drums.

When Del isn’t playing music you can find him in the middle of the woods looking at trees and mushrooms.
