David Dodson performs in Barrington

Posted

Dodson's original songs range from heartfelt to hilarious, from love songs, folk ballads and highly original rock to goofball humor and mischievous social commentary. He’s an energetic, soulful and funny performer and writes in many styles. You’ll hear a sweet song about marriage, take a satirical look at the Maine hunting season, ride along on the wagon with a thoughtful country tinged tune about enjoying beer a little too much, hear a Midwest travelogue, a tribute to his cat, a treatise on death and money, and sing along with a chorus of local folks on his internationally known secular hymn, “The Farthest Field”.  People say they feel an energized glow after a David Dodson concert, and it stands to reason; his songs tell such great stories and he enjoys playing them so much you can’t help but get swept along.

WHEN: Thursday, May 17; 6:30 p.m.
