Special guest: Dave Crossland
Powerful songwriting, a passion for justice, and a voice that can sing virtually anything make Dave Crossland one of the most talented and versatile singer-songwriters on the circuit today. Dave moves deftly between driving passion and whimsy while striking the socially relevant and the starkly personal. The Boston Globe describes Dave's songs "fiery and alluring," testing "the American dream against the American reality" with "a naturalistic sweep, a panoramic Americanism, that set them apart."
"Dave Crossland is the best singer-songwriter I've heard in years," says legendary songwriter John Stewart, a former Kingston Trio member and author of "Daydream Believer." He included Dave as the fourth member of Darwin's Army on Stewart's latest release, recently highlighted in Billboard Magazine. Dave's own recordings have been rated among the top ten acoustic albums on several radio stations across the US, including National Public Radio's "The Best of River City Folk," and "Music Americana" in Washington, D.C. Dave's music has been featured in Dirty Linen, published in Sing Out! and included on "The Best of Unsigned Acoustic Music 1998," by A-2-Z Music of New York City.
