David Singley to play Open Book Coffeehouse

May 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The Open Book Coffeehouse continues its series of live monthly concerts on Saturday evening, May 18, featuring acoustic artist David Singley. The coffeehouse is located at the Canton Public Library, 786 Washington Street, Canton.  Doors open at 6:45 PM; music starts at 7:30 PM.  Admission is $10 for the general public and $5 for students of any age. Tickets are available that evening on a first come, first serve basis. (cash or checks).

Born and raised in rural central Illinois, David Singley is a singer-songwriter-guitarist living in Saint Paul, Minnesota, whose music is born of the street, the country, and the academy. An experienced veteran with decades of backing world-class artists and performers, he has recently joined the “Great Resignation” and set his sights on his own artistic pursuits. His music evokes the golden era of the singer-songwriter: the late ’60s and early-to-mid ’70s; with its chameleonic stylistic twists and turns, as well as its memorable melodies and insightful, poetic lyrics. His music expresses a point of view that is at once highly personal and triumphantly global. His voice evokes traces of many of his influences: James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce, Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, and many others. His guitar playing is at once highly focused and passionate, impressive yet always absolutely appropriate to the song at hand.

Enjoy the relaxing, warm atmosphere of friendly people, good music, coffee, tea, and home baked goodies.  The Open Book Coffeehouse is located in the community room of the Canton Public Library at 786 Washington Street, Canton, and is made possible by the Friends of the Library. Parking is to the left when facing the library from Washington Street. Enter by the “Special Events” door to the left of the columns, midway into the parking area.
