Dakota Dave Hull with Liz Draper CD Release Concert!
Saturday January 12, 2019
Celtic Junction Arts Center
836 Prior Ave N, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55104
$15, $18 at the door.
Dave and Liz will be performing tunes from Dave’s new CD, “Another Cup,” which runs the gamut from Western Swing to Ragtime to Jazz and more. Opening set by Adam Kiesling! Doors open at 6:30, music at 7:30.
Dave is a towering figure in his field, considered a peer by the finest folk musicians this country has produced, including Doc Watson, Norman Blake, Utah Phillips, Paul Geremia, and Dave Van Ronk, who called him “one of the best guitarists in the world.”
In his 20th recording, Another Cup, Dave returns to the music that first made him a True Believer, classics from the innocent early days of the folk revival, before folk became a business and our innocence became something else. Sprinkled with a few simpatico originals, the set is given even more ‘60s purity by Liz Draper’s stand-up bass, echoing the supple lines of Russ Savakus and Bill Lee.
I love Dave for all the gracious ways he’s changed, but even more for the lovely ways he has not. He’s still folk’s Happy Warrior, still a True Believer.
