Our Next Show
As Sing Out has said about David Mallett, "Songwriting doesn’t get much better than this, and performing doesn’t get much more honest." People everywhere seem to understand what David Mallett's songs are about. Although they are rooted in place, they speak to the essential things that move us all. If you grow up in a small rural town, as Mallett did, you can't help but learn its stories. He knows about the people who shouldn't have stayed, but did, and those who shouldn't have left, but did. The loss of American towns and rural landscapes is the subject of many of his songs, as are the issues of wilderness preservation and the struggle of the common man. This will be David's ninth appearance on our stage.
George Turman is a folk singer who has quietly practiced his stock and trade now for over thirty years and has appeared many times at SGCH. Songs that tell stories and songs that express emotions or points of view, regardless of the source or style in which they are performed, are all folk songs to him. Suffice it to say that if George sings it, it’s a folk song and listeners will share and enjoy.
