David Roth in Concert
Saturday, November 23rd 7:30 pm
Award-winning singer/songwriter David Roth returns to Fine Line! Poignant to improbable, holistic to hilarious (think James Taylor meets Jon Stewart), David has taken his songs, experience, and expertise to a wide variety of venues in this and other countries full-time for three decades. His work has found it’s way to Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the Kennedy Center, Peter, Paul, & Mary and Kingston Trio CDs, the Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals (top honors at both “Emerging Artist” competitions), NASA’s Goddard Space Center (his song “Rocket Science” sailed on the space shuttle Atlantis in 2009), the Rise Up Singing and Rise Again (sequel) songbooks, and 14 CDs on the Wind River and Stockfisch (Germany) labels.
The former artist-in-residence at New York’s Omega Institute (who twice sang the national anthem at Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls games) has been on many of Christine Lavin’s seminal Rounder Records compilations, and has also taught singing, songwriting, and performance at Summersongs (NY ~ where he serves as Executive Director), the Augusta Heritage workshops (WV), Common Ground on the Hill (MD), the Woods Dance & Music Camp (Ontario), WUMB’s Summer Acoustic Music Week (NH), Moab Folk Camp (UT), Rowe Center (MA), Pendle Hill (PA), Lamb’s Retreat (MI), the National Wellness Institute (WI), and for many other songwriting groups and associations around the country. In addition, David has written more than 80 songs (over 20 years) for the Songs of Love Foundation in New York which provides free custom-made music for families with really sick children. David is also creator of the Cape Cod Songwriters Retreats and organizer/host of the Cape’s Full Moon Open Mic which for the past 15 years has provided a forum for musicians to connect and be heard while at the same time collecting donations (cumulatively over $15,000 to date) for local non-profits to help neighbors in need. Join us for another roller coaster ride of song and story as we welcome a Chicago native back to the Land of Lincoln.
Tickets $20 - Doors open at 7 pm
