David Wilcox will perform an online concert for UUCB Concerts for a Cause at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick has had to cancel 11 of its Concerts for a Cause so far because of COVID-19.
However, Wilcox whose June concert was canceled, has invited Concerts for a Cause to take part in his East Coast virtual livestream concert. It’s not the same as a live concert at the church, but it will be live online and attendees will be able to make requests and chat with Wilcox in chat.
Cleveland-born Wilcox is a singer-songwriter with insightful lyrics, a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. Wilcox has recorded 20 albums and has a wildly loyal fans following. He was a winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and in 1989 he released “How Did You Find Me Here” which sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. His latest release “The View from the Edge” earned him the Grand Prize in the 2018 USA Songwriting Contest.
In live performance, he loves making up a spontaneous song for an audience member in need. Considered a “songwriter’s songwriter”, his songs have been covered by many artists such as K.d. lang. In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched.
This concert will be an all-request show, so if you have anything you’d like to hear, go to the concert page and make your request in the chat.
Tickets cost $20, other options are available. Proceeds will benefit the Charities with Soul: Mid Coaost Hunger Prevention Program and Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project.
