Music At The Elbow
THE SHOW BELOW WILL NOT BE "LIVE IN THE SHED" BUT WE ARE HOPEING FOR A VIRTUAL SHOW BY DAVID. DETAILS LATER! Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter David G Smith (he has been in the shed before) is an acoustic solo performer with a lyric intensive style featuring guitars, a resonator, music and a voice that range from dirt-funk to intimate. Think James Taylor meets Townes Van Zandt with a side of Lowell George’s Little Feat. His music is featured on TNT, Lifetime Network, Travel Channel and he has a string of indie & major-indie song-cuts. His last 3 albums have been accepted for Grammy consideration. David, his voice and his songs are authentic. “Like Mary Gauthier and Sam Baker, Smith cuts though….to find essential phrases and words to represent the ache of living”. (Fervor Coulee) Please click on link above where you can stream his music for free!

Detroit Lakes Performance
Tonight, I will be in Detroit Lakes, MN; doing a show for the Tuesday's In The Park, sponsored by the Detroit Lakes Community and Cultural Center!! Show will start around 7. Please bring a blanket to spread on the grass or a chair to sit on!! It is a lovely venue to listen to and share songs and stories. Bring a request if you have any for me. Food is available beforehand so you can eat a bite there and then come listen. This is a FREE event, but there will be a passing of the hat for any donations you might like to make. It will be great to be back in Detroit Lakes at the Bandshell Park once again. Always enjoy sharing songs there.
