David Starr in Concert

Join us on Saturday, October 21 for David Starr in concert with special guest, Erik Stucky!  Doors open at 6:30 PM, concert begins at 7 PM. 

With a name like Starr, is it any wonder? The Arkansas native has honed his decades-long career releasing over ten albums, touring internationally, sharing the stage with esteemed artists such as John Oates and John McEuen, and opening for acts like America, John Oates (Hall & Oates), Travis Tritt, Restless Heart, Karla Bonoff, The Steel Wheels, Survivor, and more. 

His unique mix of soulful vocals and honest lyrics create a folk/roots sound all his own; garnering him prestigious showcase performances at Folk Alliance International, AmericanaFest, and Southwest Regional Folk Alliance. In 2022, he performed over 50 dates including a two-week run in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, where he has come to build and grow recurring audiences year after year. He continues to top the Colorado Music Chart and is frequently one of the most downloaded artists on Airplay Direct. A master guitarist, he is endorsed by Breedlove Guitars and was honored to create his own limited edition signature guitar and featured on the cover of their Spring 2021 magazine. 

“His music is authentic, his songs are honest; full of emotion and truth. A voice you will never forget.” - John Oates
