“I know of no other songwriter who can so convincingly capture that fleeting sense of being perfectly at one with a place and time. This is at the heart of why Mallett has won such a loyal following and holds such hope for the future.”
– Michael Hughes, Portland Press Herald
David Mallett hails from a small town in northern Maine, and in a career that spans four decades, his music has traveled to all corners of the world. His songs have been recorded by more than 150 artists, including Pete Seeger, Alison Krauss, John Denver, Emmylou Harris, and even the Muppets, and his “Garden Song” has become an American folk classic. He has performed in town halls and folk clubs across America and Europe in addition to major venues such as Barns of Wolf Trap, Newport Folk Festival, and “Prairie Home Companion”. The Bangor Daily News recognized him as one of the 58 most memorable Mainers of the 20th Century. The readers of FOLKWAX (www.folkwax.com) voted him 2003 Artist of the Year and “Artist in Me” 2003 Album of the Year. He has recorded 17 albums, including “The Fable True” (2007), based on Thoreau’s last expedition in 1857, a spoken word CD with accompanying music.
