Dan Engler returns to Living Room Concert Series April 2
VILLAGE of OAK CREEK -- Cornville singer-songwriter Dan Engler returns to the Living Room Concert Series April 2 with his "Simply Stated and Simply Played" program.
In his second performance in the living room music series in the Village of Oak Creek, Engler will perform his original folk music and talk about folk music origins and his own song-writing process. In addition, Engler will share songs from the deepest corners of the Americana-Roots-Folks music treasure chest.
Engler pens his own original story-telling songs that reflect his life experiences over the past 40 years in Arizona. His songs combine wit, wisdom and an uncanny knack for expressing real-life-truths. His straight-forward guitar playing adds a folksy counterpoint to his "down-home" lyrics.
An avid student of music and the icons of folk, rock, and blues, Dan's observations are reflected in the crafting of his songs, flavored with metaphor and experience from his 40 years in Arizona and the Southwest.
"My music is simply stated and simply played," said Engler. "They are more stories than songs and the hope is they are shared in a way through which the listener can see some aspect of their own life."
Founder of the In the Living Room music series, Shondra Jepperson commented, "This is Dan's second time performing in this music series. Everyone at his first concert had a great time getting to know him and enjoyed his music. I understand that he's got some new songs to share and I can hardly wait because I think he's a terrific songwriter." Shondra continued, "I'm hoping that his audience prepares some interesting questions to ask him during his concert. That's what makes the In the Living Room Music Series so different. It's sort of like the Actor's Studio gone music in that we encourage a Q&A during the concerts every Wednesday night so our audiences really get to know the artist behind their music."
Mark your calendars as the line up of talented artists continue with next Wednesday, April 9, talented singer-songwriter guitarist Dan Hester with his originals. April 16 will feature singer-songwriter Diane Eaton; April 23 singer-songwriter Rachel Mari Kimber and April 30 folk singer songwriter Gary Simpkins will be return for his second concert.
