David Berkeley, Singer/Songwriter, 5/11


David Berkeley, Singer/Songwriter
Friday, May 11, 2012 • 8pm Tickets: $18/advance, $20/door, $10/teens 12–17, children under 12 are free with paying adult.
Unitarian Fellowship, 4th and C Streets, Ashland
Along with his songs from his 4th CD Some Kind of Cure, David Berkeley will read excerpts from the accompanying book 140 Goats and A Guitar.
David Berkeley is a romantic realist, known for his ability to look at the human condition in all its complexity and give us luminous songs full of sunshine and anguish, melancholy and delight. He brings the people and situations he sings about to vibrant life with a warm, rich tenor that often slips into an aching falsetto to underline the overwhelming emotions that can move us to tears or laughter.
In concert, Berkeley wins crowds over with his low-key charisma and hilarious between song banter. He usually introduces songs with long, intricate anecdotes and branching commentaries, using a manner that’s more front porch than show biz, relaxing people without any apparent effort to be funny, a difficult balance to achieve. He weaves together fact, fiction and hyperbole into stories that often leave audiences in hysterics without resorting to obvious punch lines. His on stage narratives rarely repeat themselves and are full of the same astutely observed details that propel his songs.

Unitarian Fellowship, 4th and C Streets, Ashland

Cheryl Wheeler is an anomaly on the acoustic music scene. She has a rare gift for writing songs with lush melodies and lyrics of incredible beauty. On the other hand, she is a master of quick wit. Her observational humor has brought us a number of songs describing the utter ridiculousness of the world around us. And then there is the richness of her silky alto telling us what lies in the deepest recesses of her songwriter’s heart.” says, FAME

When speaking about Darol Anger and Mike Marshall’s live performances, people often use phrases like “synergy,” “breathtaking” or “space travelers.”
Darol Mike Marshall and Darol Anger, Mandolin and Fiddle from Bluegrass to Jazz
Darol and Mike have created their own way of speaking – through their instruments. A connection and a shared repertoire that goes very deep; developed over 35 years of music-making in a wide variety of music styles. It is very rare what these two have the ability to do in concert. A way of communicating through their instruments that is nothing short of breathtaking.

Eric Tingstad, a classical guitarist, and Nancy Rumbel, who plays oboe, English horn, and ocarina, began their association after meeting at a music festival in the Pacific Northwest in 1985. They were drawn together by a shared interest in applying their instruments outside their traditional settings, integrating ethnic, jazz, rock, and other contemporary influences into their classical backgrounds. Their neo-classical instrumentals mixed with a warm folk treatment has been called “Northwestern Impressionism.”
