Sunday, September 23 @ 7:30pm
Storyteller, songwriter and picture-book maker, David Massengill “emigrated” from Tennessee to the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1976 with a dulcimer and a dream of bohemian nirvana. His songwriting style ranges from tragic mountain ballads to the lure of tender love songs and iconic political narratives. His songs have been recorded by Joan Baez, David Bromberg, Chad Mitchell, The Roches, Lucy Kaplansky, Tom Russell, Nanci Griffith and his mentor, Dave Van Ronk, who once said David “took the dull out of dulcimer.” Credits include six CDs, 11 bootlegs, 15 books, a movie score, and school programs. In 2016, the Southern Folklife Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill offered to archive his works. He accepted and joins his friends and heroes Dave Van Ronk, Bill Morrissey, and Mike Seeger as a member.
He once chased a bobcat and vice versa.
The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble
Award-winning vocalist Susie Glaze, mandolinist Steve Rankin, fiddler Mark Indictor and bassist Fred Sanders are The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble, the newest version of the acclaimed Los Angeles-based Americana group. A lush new-folk Americana fusion ensemble, they present gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting new grassy and Celtic-inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susie Glaze. The band has appeared at many premier venues and festivals on the West Coast, including Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, McCabe’s Guitar Shop, The Broad Stage, the Hollywood Bowl. Their CD White Swan was released in March 2013 and charted in the Top 50 on the Roots Music Report’s Combined Internet and Terrestrial Folk Chart. Their new album Not That Kind of Girl, produced by Herb Pedersen, was released in June 2015 and is enjoying critical acclaim and radio airplay around the country.
“If there were a word to describe this fine band, it would be sophisticated. They draw influences from disparate sources to meld their sound. The level of musicianship is exemplary.… display a great range of prowess and work as a tight unit.”
