Event description
Original songs from the heart of a poet and the soul of a maestro, examining subject matter as varied as Daves interests

About this Event

Dave parked his venerable Toyota in favor of a 38-foot Bayliner motor yacht. From the bridge of this vessel, he has seen America like very few others have. As he voyaged, Dave shared his music with new audiences along the wayin unconventional and idyllic places and filled his quiver with new songs inspired by the journey, which will be recorded on a future CD release.

Daves music is handmade and heartfelt. It springs from deep roots borne out of the song traditions of Ireland and the British Isles, cultivated in the roots music of North America, and filtered through the musical sensibility of a classically-trained musician who is as at home directing a choir or wind ensemble as he is standing with his acoustic guitar in front of a large audience singing songs together.

The path Dave Rowe took to music was probably unavoidable. Both of his parents were professional musiciansas were both of his grandfathers. Daves late father, Tom, was a founding member of the internationally-acclaimed folk trio, Schooner Fare. A lineage and pedigree of which Dave is proud, but to define his music through the lens of what came before would be a mistake. Hes made a name for himself not because of what his father achieved, but in spite of it.

Theres a risk of being pigeonholed when undertaking a similar path to a parent, a hurdle Dave has risen above time and again in his many years on the road and fifteen critically-acclaimed recordings, leading Sing Out! contributor and long-time WFDU radio host, Ron Olesko, to write of the younger Rowe, To look at his youthful appearance, you would not suspect that Dave has 27 years of experience as a professional musician, but as soon as he takes the stage you can tell that this man is a consummate artist. Dave graces the stage and brings everyone under his spell. The son of the late Tom Rowe of Schooner Fare, Dave has folk music in his heart and soul. Based in Maine, I hope Dave will spend more time performing at venues throughout the country so others can discover the magic he creates.

Daves 2019-2020 floating musical journey took him through eighteen U.S. states and Ontario, Canada. He with his trusty guitar; his yacht, Stinkpot; and his first mate, Stacey, rose from sea level to 900 feet above sea level utilizing countless locks on the way.When not plying the high seas, Dave moors his boat on the wharves of Portland, Maines largest city, and travels from there to enthrall audiences all over the continental United States and Canada, leading a reviewer from Milwaukees Irish American Post to write, Rowes huge, deep voice filled the room and vibrated off the walls. Within minutes, he had everyone singing and clapping along. It was a toe-tapping good time.
